Dojo Loach - Possible Ich

My girlfriend just called and said she say a large white spot on one of Dojo loaches. We have Dojo's, one about a year or so old (guess..got him when he seemed good size) and one that is very young. The spot is on the older Dojo.

I haven't seen the fish yet, so don't know for sure if it is Ich. But she did say it was a large white spot. Ich usually isn't large spot, is it? Could it possibly be him shedding some skin (Dojo's shed, correct?)

If it is Ich, any recommendations. I currently do not have a hospital tank :( , so I would treat the main tank with both Dojo's.

Thanks for any help or thoughts.
