Oscar with big white spot on it, HELP!

So I just got ich out of my tank or under control I guess, now one of my Oscars has this large white spot on it that has just gotten worse, it was not white like this a couple days ago. It was just a lump that was protruding from the skin. Please help!

Do you know your water parameters?

When was the last time you did a water change -
what size tank and filtration, have you changed the filter pads recently, or cleaned the media in tap water?

Is it cycled, how long has the tank been set up?

Any new fish recently?

I was going to ask if it was a heater burn, but you said it was a bump?

Getting that water in safe parameters is #1 for helping the fish fight off infection /get better.
New to FW fish? First tank in a long time or EVER??? Need some info on keeping fish?
