Ick + Firn rott

Hello everyone, I bought plants for my betta the other day and ever since then he has been sick. I took the plants off and treated him for fin rott (his anal fin was grayish and eroding at the tips) and this morning i noticed about six little little little tiny white spics on his body and some on his anal fin. I'm going to the LFS to get something to treat his ick... Is it okay to combine Maracyn Two and some anti paracitic medication? likely Aquarisol.
Thank you so much!!! Also he is on his third day of treatment with Maracyn Two- Should I make a 50% water change? I did a 100% before his treatment started... I'm about to leave right now sorry i did not fill out the servay I'm following all recomendations from this site... 5 gallon heated, filtered 2 50% water changes per week, 3 pellets in the morning, 4 at night. Thank you all!

Maracyn 2 won't fix ick and it wouldn't be my first step for fin rot either.

Please fill this out: along with what your water parameters are and how long the tank has been set up
