Can you possibly post a picture of the fish in question to get a better understanding as to what it might be.
Also what are your parameters for Ammonia, Nitrite, Nitrate? Disease is usually a sign of something wrong with your tank, unless the fish are new and already had the disease.
Fungal infection requires a different treatment than ich so it is fairly crucial to be absolutely sure which one it is.
