if the only symptems are the marks left from the slim and other than that the fish are looking better then you don't need to re-medicate, but if the slime is still there, and growing larger then I would suggest you re-medicate.

either way though, I would do a large (50%-75%) water change as the first thing that I do
and add some salt (1 tablespoon per 5 gallons assuming you don't have any already in your tank)
