I did a search using ringworm and found your thread. Just finished reading it and now realise how bad ring worm is. You've now had a lot of experience (none of it good) with ring worm and I'm hoping you might be able to help me out with some pointers/advice.
I started to get these welts on my body about a week ago
I had no idea what it was till i visited a doctor who gave me a name that a friend translated (I live in China). Is this normal for ring worm?
I'm fine so the problem is my 2 three month old kittens.
They show no signs of ringworm such as spots or baldness like you mentioned. That makes me think they are carriers only. Do you know what the treatment is for carriers?
If they to have spots, are they obvious? I'll check again tonight.
I washed them last night (not fun, like your experiences) with my shampoo and have given them clean bedding, washed my bed etc. Not sure about the couch. Can they be infected again from something like a couch they use regularly? What did you do for cleaning things such as bedding, couches, chairs etc?
In my opinion and I have been fighting an outbreak for 5 months is to treat aggressively, use grisseofulvin or another oral medication, treat the sores topically, bathe the cats in an antifungal shampoo and clean, clean, clean. A good cleaner with residual action is A-33 dry and health guard laundry additive for soft surfaces. Bleach is great but ruins a lot of stuff the other cleaners have a residual action so you can actually keep up with the cleaning. And for the guy with all the lesions...get yourself to a doctor. Even cats with no lesions should be treated!
