silver patches on queen loach

Hi there everyone! I have enjoyed this site for many months now. I have a 55g with three clown loaches and two queen loaches. Recently one of my queen loaches has developed a silvery patch on the side of the body near the tail. I treated for ich and fungus with no result. It dosen't seem to be growing or spreading. Could it be "burned" from chlorine after a water change? I am very careful to condition the water before adding it to the tank. If anyone has any suggestions I would love to hear them. Thanks!
