White spot salt water cure

HI all I know they say there is no proven cure for white spot but I have to let you know that I used garlic drops and ooinex for 3 days with no lights and the result is no more white spot. I will keep you up to date as the weeks go on. I thought I would share this as I hope it can help others thanks

There are proven cures for ich. It's hyposalintity or copper treatment. Ich has a live cycle where it is visible for 3-7 days on the fish then it drops of into the sand to reproduce. Since you said it's been 3 days i am inclined to say it just fell off to reproduce. Garlic and other miracle cure have never been proven to work an never will be. Not coming down on you just informing. Keep a close eye on your fish and good luck.
