HELP! I think my loach is ill!

We have had our weather loach for a bit over four years now, and he is just about 8 1/2 inches long. Recently, he has begun to develop a discoloration on the left side fo his body, and more recently, what appears to be pockets of maybe peeling skin on his head?

He has not been eating as much lately and is very lethargic.... We did find out that our ammonia levels were a bit high, so that has been corrected, but he continues to be slow and moody.

Has anyone had this problem? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!
