SOS Please

I don't know what to do. Ever since we moved into our new place, a circular white discoloration appeared where his back fin is attached to its body, and got bigger and bigger over the last 6 months. I went to petsmart, and they suggested it was ick, gave me a some medicine, but it didn't help. Seems to me that icks form all over a betta's body, but this was only one spot. Now it got bigger and turned into a bump, and the bump kept getting bigger, and appeared on the other side of the fin. Now my betta is swimming around, with no appearent change in his behavior, but a huge white bump.

i have no idea about what to make of this.... please help.

i would start him off with a 100% water change and an aquarium salt bath. add AQ salt to his newly conditioned tank water and turn his heat up to 80-82, but not fast that will only stress him out. try to match the temp of his new water with his old water.
some one more knowledgeable may be able to tell you what it is but from the picture i cant tell. AQ salt is a miracle worker!
