If you''re sure it's ich, raise the temperature to around 86 for several days. Also, use an ich specific medication. It''s always a good idea to do a large partial water change before treating just to improve water quality. Ich is always present and it's usually a break down in conditions that causes it to infect the fish.

Are the spots fuzzy/cottony looking or are they more flush to the skin and small like grains of sand/salt stuck all over thefish?
Photos of the fish that show the spots in question would be helpful.
