Urgent! Need help with Duncan the Yo-yo! *PIC*

I need some help with Duncan. I'm pretty sure he has an internal bactterial infection...possibly septicemia. As you can see (sorry these were the bestphotos I could get of him) his fins are red and less visible is what appears to be extra body slime, most toward the top of his head.

In the past with corys I've had poor results treating this kind of illness with the Maracyns. Can I safely combine Tripple Sulfa with the Maracyns? I'm really worried about him and don't want to lose him so any input is appreciated.
