Sounds like external parasites, take a close look! Is it little worms attached to the sides of your fish? Is a picture possible?

Could be? But brownish stringy things are not ich so... I would need a picture before I tell you whats good or not. What sort of ich treatment?

Sounds like maybe anchor worms or something like that. As ich is a parasite it makes sense that the treatment would also help against the worms, however, it may not be the most effective remedy.
