Question Help!! Sick Molly! :(

We have a couple of mollys. We've had them for roughly 6 months. We have other fish as well but we have a 55 gallon tank. I noticed shortly after I added 2 roseybarbs that my female Molly developed ich (for the second time ever). I noticed the ich 3 days ago, only on her, so I started an organic tank ich treatment, added salt and raised the tank temp to 74. I know for ich it can be higher but I forgot how high, so I'm playing it safe. Here's the kicker. She is turning COMPLETELY WHITE. Her whole body. She used to be a deep yellow, very pretty, but now, over night, she's WHITE. (Not ich spot white, SOLID WHITE). I have noooo idea what this is??? Help me?? :/

Ps I tested our tank, everything checks out..
NO-3 20
NO-2 0
PH 8.0
KH 240
GH 30

Hi, did you get an answer? If not can you post a pic with a description? Had a quick look and 86F is needed. Link below

I have had mollies a bit higher than this for a week with no problems.
