i looked up this site out of my desperation of my kitten with ringworm. Anyone had been there, i am wondering if you can answer some of my questions.
I took Milo from a park when he was about 2 or 3 weeks old. He was looking poor cos he was abondoned by his mother, that time his eyes were not even completely opened. He was not in a good condition either, lots of fleas, very skinny, eyes infection, undernutriented.
Anyway, after 2 weeks i had him, cleaning up the fleas and at the time he seemed back to himself, i found him having these round patches all around and he's diagnosed with ringworms.
i did what the vet said, bath soak (with potassium permaganate), cream...
may i ask: 1. if it is a good idea to have his fur all shaved so that the cream can be more easily applied so as to speed up the healing process?
2. Milo started to shed dried crust-skin-hair all around the room (that i isolated for him), is it part of the healing stages or getting worse?
3. How long does it take to completely heal so that i can let him out? and
4. if it is likely or unlikely he will have ringworms again?
i am living in İstanbul and the vets here seems to have regime and treatments varies so much. i don't really know who to listen to.
