The easiest treatment is to add salt and raise temperature. But first, what fish/plants/inverts are in the tank? What temp is it at now?

Can you provide details of how you treated last time? It is possible you didn't completely eliminate it the first time.

Ich can be dormant on fish even if there are no spots. It is important to continue treatment after the signs of Ich go away. Raising the temperature will increase the speed at which the Ich goes through it's lifecycle.

86F. Raise it slowly so as to not stress the fish.
