Medicine and loaches

Hi: I have some GloLites that have some kind of cyst type internal growths in them that seem to be coming to the surface of their bodies. Bought some Kanacyn and some Super Ich Plus to treat them. Question is Ich medicine states its not to be used on 'Scaleless Fish, Clown Loaches, and most silver scaled fish' (It contains Malachite Green and Quinine Hydrochloride.) I have 2 dojos, 3 black loaches, 1 silver loach, and a botia (pink with black strip down back) Is this medication safe to use with them in the tank? HELP PLEASE...Thankx, Cheryl
