I agree that it's not ich. Looks like it might be lymphocystosis, which is a viral infection. No cure, nothing you can do but wait for it to go away on its own. Minimizing stress will keep it in check. It's not lethal unless growths form in an area that inhibits it's ability to function, like around the gills or something.
To answer your questions though, you can take the temp up to 90 without any concern of killing the fish. Every new fish I get goes through a 2 week heat treatment at 88-89 and I've yet to find a fish that couldn't handle it.
