Stubborn Ich won't go!!!!!!!!!

My new babies, the rice crispies gang, has ich. 5 days of treatment hasn't cleared it up. I did a 50% water change tonite and a gravel vac, and I am starting a second course of treatment. It's a really mild case, less that 5 spots on each but still....The temp is at 81, which is its usual temp. Im gonna go up a few degrees, should I bother with salt??? I'm getting frustrated, fate doen't want me to have little stripys. They arent rubbing, they are eating well, I have a slight nitrite reading, using Prime to counteract that.Poor guys, its no wonder they dont want to come out, they don't feel well :(.
