Exclamation ICH! Help!

I was checking up on my betta's as usual and after taking care of aquilies, I check on Cheshire and saw... ICH!

White spots like salt all over his head!!! Hes rubbing against gravel and stuff so IT'S ICH.

Oh god... How to treat this? I don't have have any anti parasital medicine atm and won't be able to get my hands on any till wensday (store is closed till then!)

I'm freaked out, I have AQ salt does that help? How can I raise temp my heater keeps it at 75 F.

Also How the hell did he get ich? i don't share fish equipment nor feed live foods.

my heater is a preset one so raising temp is hard, I have make a rice sock heater but don't know how long the heat will last, all I know is that it will be a few hours.

I put him a cup to easier heat it and added salt to his water and wrapped it with towels to attempt to keep in the heat.

I will try to get medicine as soon as possible. Just let me get some facts straight.

1- salt helps?
2- When do I medicate?
3- How will I know the parasite can be killed or detach from the fish?
4- How to disinfect tank
5- How contagious is it? Like share same item and your contaminated? or share the same enviroment for a long time ?
