Itchy Yo-Yo???? HELP!!!

My Mom & I recently treated our 29 gallon tanks for Ick. She lost 2 Clowns to it, but her other loaches are fine after a 5-day treatment of Mardel Maracide (consecutive days). Mine were seemingly fine until a couple days after the treatment stopped. Now one is scratching on the bottom again, he is "chewing" really fast, and his little back fin is flat against his back. Definitely not normal for this little guy. Anyone have any suggestions? Am treating 3 Ghost Cats for secondary/bacterial infections that started while treating for Ich with Mardel Maracyn. Water changes are regular, nitrites/ammonia are fine, ph seems to have gone up though. Any suggestions/comments are welcome!!! These little guys are my favorite pets!!!
