Hi KellyL. First, I assume by white spot you mean ich parasites? Like they look kind of like little salt flecks?
Secondly, what kind of treatment are you using? Do you have the name of it? That would help. :)
In the meantime, if you can, try to increase the heat to about 30 C because increased heat literally causes the parasites to stop their life cycle. This means they can't reproduce so when they die, they die. Depending on what other kind of fish you have in there, you most likely will need to add an airstone to increase aeration. At higher temps, the oxygen levels get lower and some fish really can't tolerate that. If any of the fish show signs of distress, lower the heat a bit.
