In my opinion medications are needed no mater if you introduced new fish or not , for instance when my guys get in a fight and they have scrapes and damaged skin I usually put in a anti bacterial and some aquarium salt in with them it seems to work because I haven't lost a fish in a very long time, a very long time!

Some sites to Look at for help on this subject.

Jungle Labs
Aquarium Pharmaceuticals

Some good brands I like to use:

For Bacteria/Fungus I use:

Melafix® by Aquarium Pharmaceuticals® : This is GOOD Stuff I recommend this to any one who will listen

Formalin by :it works ok

Formailn3® by Kordon® : Works fairly well

For Ich I use:

Before I use any medications for Ich I would try the old method first

Rid Ich+® by Kordon®: it's not to bad of stuff

For Water conditioners I use:

Aquanova +® by Kordon®
