Ick does not just go away. These are parasites that burrow into the fish and then fall off, land on the bottom of the tank and reproduce, Get yourself some Ick Guard or some type of Ick medication, remove your charcoal if you use it, and treat according to directions.
Ick will kill your fish and with this much ick on him, he is very stressed right now.
If you use aquarium salt, raise your temps but do not raise the temps if you use medication. Medication depletes the oxygen in the tank and so does raising the temps so do not do both.
