salt and scaless fish

I know normally you wouldn't necessarily want to put salt in with Otos and loaches but can they tolerate it for a week or 2? And if so how much would be recommended?? I am switching meds and thought the Platys would especially benefit from a little salt.

...if you're worried, add the salt water very slowly...

I'd dissolve the salt first before introducing it to the tank. Any grains of salt can burn their skin most unfortunately.
