So sorry that you lost your shrimp. I've saved your feedback so that the next time this happens, I'll have a better answer. (I confess that I was grasping, since I have no experience with this dreadful disease.)

It will be interesting to see going forward if your last shrimp is permanently cured. I wonder if the treatments killed all the parasite eggs in the tank?

The ultimate cause of the problem could be a genetic problem of the shrimp, environmental stress, or an intractable pathogen. I lost my shrimp one-by-one to what I think now was the buildup of plant allelochemicals. It may take awhile for you to sort out the ultimate cause of the problem.
