Sick ghost shrimp with black spots

A few weeks ago I had two ghost shrimps in my tank. One started developing black spots and becoming very dried out and crusty looking. I thought maybe she was just old. She died shortly after. My other shrimp seemed to be okay and unaffected. Yesterday I went out and got more shrimp. When I added them to the tank I noticed that my remaining old shrimp now had the black spots and was lying on her side. She seems almost dizzy and is jumping everywhere. I have her in a separate container where she is just lying on her side. Does anyone know what this is and if itís treatable or not? Also is there anything I can do for the new shrimp since they were exposed? My Betta and guppies have all remained fine through all of this.
Thank you
