Sick fish

Ok, so one of my new fish, a Singapore Angel, had developed a bacterial infection in it's left eye. From what I understand that is common for angels in a new tank.
So it was removed from the DT and placed in a QT with lowered salinity (1.012) and is now on day 3 of treatment with Maracyn-Two. It seems to have developed ich while in the DT. Is it possible to treat for both the cloudy eye and ich at the same time or will I be overmedicating my poor fish?
It doesn't seem too bad. It's still swimming around it's QT and she eats a lil bit, but she has developed those little white spots.
HELP!!

Lower the salinity more and the ich will die. Isn't that what hyposalinity is all about? Your actually not too far off right now.

Thanks Mr.X dropped to 1.010. Is that low enough?
