Well, I asked my dermatologist and two vets about this - and explained the ringworm and animal thing to them. All 3 were agreed that I can go home when the ringworm is gone
...Which is not going so well....So far i've tried OTC stuff, Mentax cream- that seems to be working the best out of everything, but takes forever! And i've also tried a oral medication in a pill form this week which was an antifungal- I had a horrible allergic reaction from it and wound up getting Thrush in my mouth
....luckily though, I cought the symptoms just in time and immediately called my dermatologist and told him what was going on- he told me to stop taking the pill for the ringworm, and he ordered me a mouthwash for the thrush. You gargle it and then swallow it- it's an antifungal as well. Well, the mouth wash is working wonders and the Thrush is almost completly gone! Yea!!
....but the ringworm on the other hand isn't! My spots are starting to look better...but i still have quite a few on my arms and legs. So hopefully those will clear up soon and I can get back home. But until then, I can't afford for ALL of my furbabies at home to get it- that would be a nightmare to treat! Also, my mom had surgery back in June....so any kind of fungal infection could really make her sick- which is another reason i'm not gonna risk it. Thankfully though I have a very wonderful and loving boyfriend...who doesn't mind be staying with him till i'm better. He got ringworm from me when I didn't realize I had it...and Kenzie has it still (if you look at her recent pictures...on her tail, you can still see bald spots)...Fosters had a tiny spot, but it's all cleared up
/ So what i've been doing is keeping Colin's house immaculant, vaccuming with a new bag daily, spraying down the house regurally, and making sure everyone has their medicine....that's about all I can do for now. I miss my furbabies though!!
