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

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.:)
