Dropsy is not an illness but rather a symptom so if she has that it means she has something else wrong.

How is she acting? Is she eating? Swimming normally? And what are your water parameters (namely pH, ammonia, and nitrates)?

Cory cats can be more sensitive to certain meds because they are scaleless. But don't medicate unless you know what's wrong and it would be better to move her to a small hospital tank for treatment.

She could very well be overweight, too. How much do you feed her?

For now I would fast her for a couple days, test the water, and keep an eye on her to make sure she doesn't get worse. If possible, take a picture to post here as it might help .

Good luck!
