Previous I had this for my other clowns. It disappeared by itself as I made caves for them. . But now I have only a pair of clown and hermit crab.

If you take good care of the fish the Lymphocystis will go away.
No one really can answer the questions you asked other than your self. All depends on how you run your tank. You need good clean water will low Nitrates and no build up of macro or micro nutrients, stability of conditions.
Good luck.

Don't spend any money on this snake oil.

We have less than a handful effective antiviral for human viral diseases. These included major killer of humans like Hep B, Hep C, HIV. They all worth more than their weight in Platinum.
Benign viral infection in fish have $0.00 money spend on research. Antiviral for human are so expensive that reefkeepers can't even use human antiviral to try to treat fish.
