i think you meant white parasite and you don't have any parasite killers,

I'm not sure what it is, but i think ich shows up as white spots on your fish, so it could be a possibility, someone with more knowledge will help

Have you gotten any new fish lately? and what are your water levels? and temps?

You should remove the fish from the tank and place it in a separate tank.

Ditto on what Kendalle asked.Did you get any new fish?Water temps?Water quality?

What does the parasite look like? A general anti-parasite medication (which you said you have) will probably work but if it doesn't, I'll need some more information to help.

Good luck .
