Exclamation Is My Betta Sick?

I just noticed my betta has a little bit of white stuff on both of its pectoral fin (regular fin) and the same stuff on a few of its scales. I think it is Ick. Also, I have seen it staying in one place for long periods of time. If it is sick, tell me what medicine I should use specifically from Petco or Petsmart. And can I put aquarium salt to avoid infections or is it bad.

Thank you in advance :)

Could you fill the sticky at the top of the diseases forum and post it here? I dont see why you saw the need to post it in two places...

It is looks like ICK . I treated fish long time ago with MARACIDE BY BIOSPHERES. The fish i treated recovered.

But ICK can be treated with aquarium salt. So i would wait for other people for advice on that. The aquarium salt dose very important it should be i think 1tsp/gall.with 100% water changes every day.

I posted it in two places because I just realized that I posted it in the wrong place. Thanks about the advice

Also, how often are you doing water changes? It really would be great if you could fill out the sticky at the top of the betta diseases section of the forum.
