Fish eating Ich ?!?!?!?

So this is an odd question to post, but here goes: Will fish eat the Ich off of other fish?

I ask because I have a tank with several clowns that I have been treating for a nice case of Ich for about 2 weeks now. The clowns are starting to act normal again, but they still are showing some ich on them and the tiger barbs in the tank appear to be eating the Ich off of the clowns. The clowns don't seem to mind, but I've had Ich before in another tank and never saw behavior like this.
