Raise the temp. in your tank to 80-82F and treat with Aquarium salt 1tsp/gal. Do 100% daily water changes and re-add salt. It's best to have the salt mix with water before adding to the tank.
You can use the salt treatment for up to 10 days- then you need to be just doing regular water changes.
I have a couple of questions::
1) What size is the tank?
2) How often and what % do you do water changes?
3) Is it heated, and to what temp.?

When my fish got /really/ bad ick I used Kordon Ich Attack. The salt wasn't working in my case and I was afraid to use any other medication because another Ich medication, just a few months before, had been too strong for my friends betta and took him down with the illness. :c

This stuff worked amazingly for me and saved my poor fish from a very vicious downward spiral.

Yeah this works well too.
And just as a precaution, you need to get a heater - a lamp won't do a very good job unless you're leaving it on 24/7. Also to keep up with water quality, you need to be doing one 80% and one 100% water change once a week.

Also get a thermometer. They're cheap (around $3) and they will warn you if your water is too cold/too hot - preventing from a fishy death.
