Default White fungus and Fridging

Hi, I found some white fungus growing on my two axolotls and so I have put them in the fridge and I have been giving them salt baths twice daily. This has been for about three days now. However, when bathing them today i found the white on their bodies had gotten worse. Is this just a reaction to the salt? Do I need to be worried? What do I do? Please help me!

This is the photo I took of my eldest one, and my other Axie isn't much better.

I've never fridged an Axolotl for fungus, and only ever salt bathed once and that was only because a friends Axolotl had 3 limbs bitten off and ended up with fungus on all 3 limb wounds.

Id suggest not putting them in the fridge, do the salt bath once a day. Keep them in cool dechlorinated water. Change the water 100% everyday.

Victory awaits him who has everything in order luck, we call it.
Defeat is certain for him who has neglected to take the necessary precautions in time bad luck we call it.
