Looks like columnaris to me. Medications that treat external bacterial infections are your best bet.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

Columnaris is a bacterial disease with symptoms like white lips, white scales and clamped fins. Your fish appears to have columnaris. Your med should be ok then. I've never use Myxazin but if it works, your molly will be ok.

Good luck.:)
