If you could post a photo that would help, but it sounds like your betta has fin rot. If it is that bad, I would recommend getting an antibiotic such as tetracycline. I have also read, although have not used myself, that Maracyn 2 and Jungle Fungus Eliminator work as well. You can order all of these medications from www.drsfostersmith.com
, although if you can find them elsewhere great. The sooner the better. If you do decide to use the meds, I can not stress enough how important it is to do frequent water changes of about 25% during treatment. Also, don't feel bad, because most of the betta fish that are in pet stores already have these infections. In fact, when I went to buy mine, there were NO fish there that were not sick in some way. Good luck.
