please help, do I need to go to the LPS?

My EE seems to have come down with Body Slime Infection overnight. Just a little slime hanging off her face. I'm getting ready to start the water changes with aquarium salt. I know with some sicknesses the temp the betta is kept in need changed. What temp should this fish be kept in while I am treating her? I have a heater that will keep her about 80, but if it needs to be higher I need to run out and buy one.

what helps me is instead of raising the temperature is raising the humidity. put suran wrap over the tanks top and poke holes in it.

I agree with raising the humidity, she should be fine at 80 degrees. The best remedy for body slime is malachite green. Most ick/parasite medications contain malachite green. Pick up some mardel maracide or seachems paraguard, both are effective, make sure to treat exactly as instructed, malachite green is harmful if overdosed

Thank you guys. I tried the aquarium salt I found listed, & put in the heater, but I lost her over night. :(
