need advice bad on my sick loach

My clown loach has a small white spot on both eyes and a tiny spot on him mouth where the whiskers are. I am treating him with Melafix. He also has had Oxytetracyn, and Neomycin.
He has been fighting something for a while. His fins were bad but they look 100% better. Also His mouth used to be fuzzy and it went away now this. His color looks good, and I think he's still eating.
My water is testing Nitrate20,Ammonia 2.5, PH 7.2
I did use Ammo lock in it yesterday. I have a few other fish in the tank too. I have lost 6 fish in the past month due to sickness including another clown loach. It died from a bad fungus that ate his mouth off. I really want to save thisloach.
Yes, I have done water changes between deaths and medcine.

Thanks!~Jennifer
