    Soulds like you have Ick (white spots )
    Do partial water change Increase the temp to around 86-88 and run into your nearest fish store and grab a treatment for it.

    Picture of it would be helpfull and also what are your water parameters

    Water changes will allways stress fish a bit, but its for their well being. Buy not doing wc you dont do them a favour as well. If you have some amonia, nitrate. nitirites fish would be stressed out a lot more and prone to deseises so its a must to give to your fish as cleanest water as possible
