Try looking for something that says it can treat hexamita... that would be a similar enough problem to be appropriate, thus it would contain the right ingredients for what you need.

I got Metronidazole! Previously just didn't get to my mind that I have to ask personally, not just look around on Internet websites. I hope that this medicaments will help Corydoras to get well. And another good news is that both NO2 and NO3 are zero.
I feed my fish twice a day - I give them 3 Hikari sinking wafers and 1 Tropical green algae wafer on the midday and 2 Hikari and sometimes 1 Tropical late in the evening.

Thank you, Bettababy, for all your help. Me and my fiancÚ are very grateful!

Jolita, are there any pellet foods that your corys will eat? That would be the best and easiest form of food to medicate with the metronidazole.

Once you let me know what kind of foods they will take, how big the pellets/wafers are, etc, then I can quickly talk you through how to medicate the food safely. I'll check back here again tonight so you can get to this quickly and begin treatment asap.

Just so you are aware, treating the water with the metronidazole is not going to have the same effect as treating the food and you can't do both at the same time without overdosing the fish. Medicating the food will help the medication be effective much faster than treating the water, and it would be much safer for the other fish, too. Not all of your fish are likely to respond well to this kind of medication at full dose in the tank water.
