Hi, that is Ich. You need to be patient; it is good that you raised the temperature and added salt. This will sort out the problem, although you need to keep the temp high and water salty for at least 4 days after all symptoms have disappeared from the fish. This is because in the life cycle of ich, after they leave the fish they are free floating, folowed by settling on the tank bottom, so are still alive. It is at this time the treatment kills ich. It is also good you have a bare bottom tank, as there is no substrate for ich to settle in and be protected. Hope the fish recovers soon
