I've never used it, but it doesn't look like it treats ich:

For infections of: fin and tail rot, gill disease, popeye, and secondary infections
TriSulfa is a specially compounded broad-spectrum antibiotic for use in both fresh and saltwater aquariums.

TriSulfa treats both gram positive and gram negative infections in ornamental fish.

TriSulfa is also effective for preventing secondary bacterial infections from developing when fish are attacked by parasites.

Secondary infections are fungal or virial, I believe, not parasitic, but can be caused as a result of the parasite, like an infection.
Some one else might be able to explain it a little better.

Like you take, if you get an infection or for bronchitis.

I don't think it will kill the immature ich (tomites).

It is talking about that it will help with any infections in your fish that are after it has been infected. I dont believe this will do anything for ick in your tank going by what Roka64 said he saw on the label.
