Look in the fish diseases section here.
Not sure how Oscars react to salt - one remedy is to add slat and elevate the tank temperature, otherwise you will need to purchase medicine and medicate as per the manufacturers directions.

Father Knows Best but Abbey knows everything! I once knew everything, then I asked one question.
