Help with red spots on guppy!

A few days ago I moved one of my female guppies to a separate tank and treated her for ich. Yesterday was day 2 of the treatment (directions say do it every other day) and she is more active and looking better. All of the white spots have completely disappeared but in their path have left red, blood looking spots on her. One area looks pretty bad as it is a red line just behind her right fin. She is eating fine and is pretty active (kind of unhappy about being separated from her other guppy buddies) and seems to be doing better all except for those red spots. Is this just damage that the ich did that will heal or is this a bad sign?

First I would do a water change and quit using the ich meds. They can harm a fish quite badly. Turn the temp in the tank up slowly to 86 F and keep it there for 2 weeks after the last spot is gone. Do regular water changes. Ich does not leave red spots behind AFAIK.

Believe it or not...she is actually looking much better. I looked at her yesterday and the red areas are starting to go away. I will probably be putting her back in the main tank soon.
