i have had this several times on my female guppys, there skin starts white then turns fleshy and eventually she dies :( sorry about your fish lioness

Treatments: i have tried several. Mela fix, EM tablets, fungus guard

but the thing is its a bacterial infection.

To properly and effectively treat this we first have to identify it for sure. If it is dropsy, look for protruding scales, like they're all standing up away from the body. This could be parasitic (worms) or bacterial in nature, for which there are different types of medications. What other fish are in the tank?
The more info I know about the tank, the more I can help.
What are the water params for ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, and pH? Temp?
