My betta fish has recently been very lethargic and has this white spot under his chin. I am decently sure the spot is ich so I added ick medicine into the tank along with aquarium salt. The next day (today) I noticed he is still just laying behind a rock in the tank and now his fins are starting to discolor. Please help diagnose the problem and tell me how to fix it. He is a new fish and I already am attachedto him. II'd be devastated to see him die

I can't get a good picture :/ if I get one I'll send it but my phone camera sucks and he's lying down so u can't really see it but it's just a patch of white just behind but not touching the gills, it it just a patch. Its on the underside of his body, probably a centimeter long and it only reaches up to just under eye level but it stays in the area I described.

I don't know what it is. It doesn't look fuzzy like fungus but it wasn't there before. It might be discoloration but Idk
