If you are sure they got ich or ick, then the fish need immediate treatment or they will be wiped out eventually.

I would have recommended the heat treatment if you had tropical fish, but since your fish are goldfish, I guess the easier way is to use the medication.

Check out the ich meds at the end of the following ich treatment article.

It is probably a fungal infection. So, you better check your water quality for minerals and toxic substances. Clean your tank twice a week. It will ensure good health for you fishes.
