What are the other tankmates? Assuming these are also livebearers, all is well...

You have mollys... so ich treatment is fairly simple. Heat and salt.

Mollies can handle salt up to full marine levels, ich cannot. The heat increases the speed of the life cycle of the parasite, and the salt will kill the free swimmers (the only time its truly susceptible to treatment).

Can you get a pic from above the tank so we are looking down at the fish? those scales look suspiciously like they are pine coning, can't see ich although it would be difficult on a white fish, the white flecking we can see is not ich as it far too uniform in neat rows, those are her scales.

I agree, Never seen Ich in neat rows like that.

Please stop using medication untill we know whats wrong with the fish.

The reddish-orange spots are fairly common on dalmatian molly, it's also a part of their colouration. The white flecking is simply scale iridescence, nothing to worry about.

Both pics are not mine, just ones I found off Google images.
Here's an example of the orange spots:

And the white flecking:


If the spots are ever randomly placed and raised, and she shows signs of irritation, that could be ich.
