Aku has been receiving ringworm treatment since mid-January (oral prescription and topical cream). The result of his first toothbrush culture (done 2 weeks ago) is negative but there's still a little black appearing on the very edge of his ear (it looks like the end stage of ringworm when it is finished flaking and just turns black and then dies off; and, even that black seems to be disappearing at a rapid pace). Needless to say, his owner is a bit confused - why was there a negative culture but still black areas appearing on his ear? Has anyone run into this before? I had no explanation for Aku's owner so I'm hoping someone here can help him. Thanks for your time.
