    Is this ringworm?

    Sure looks like ringworm to me. Be very careful so that you don't get it too, it's highly contagious.

    Is this ringworm?

    ...it but it can take a week or 2. They sent him home with “hexzole” wash. Has anyone else has any experience with this? Is this in fact ringworm? They didn’t confirm that it is but they suspect it could be or another fungal infection. Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions? He...

    Cystoisospora felis - we need good thoughts

    ...it was a nightmare. I learned so much about myself. I never would have rescued our girl (she was still a kitten) if I had know about ringworm. I am so happy I didn’t know she had it or I would have missed out on some serious joy in my life. She gave us so much love and there is nothing like...

    Red swirls on skin and squinty eyes: the ongoing saga of Jinkx

    ...so right now she's just on Omega-3, the eye drops (lubricant and an immunosuppressant) and medication to make sure that her skin isn't ringworm (the vet says she's pretty sure it isn't but wanted to be extra safe). Her eyes are looking much better, the blisters have really gone down and she...

    Dealing with Ringworm!!!!

    ...started to go away so I thought and then practically overnight she was covered with them all over. Oddly it didn’t look like the classic ringworm look. And to add to the icing on the cake Luke started with similar rash but his was more round. Long story short I took all three to the vet...

    Red rings help!

    Change of plans we have a vet appointment set up for tomorrow so hopefully they'll help. I'm pretty sure he got it from the breeder because we've only had him for 2 weeks and when she gave him to us he was super skinny like we could see all of his vertebrae.

    Red rings help!

    I'm not able to get to the vet for two weeks due to pay day but what we are going to do is go to PetSmart and get some shampoo. A friend of ours told us about this anti fungal shampoo and cream that will get rid of it so that's the plan for now. I've personally had rw many years ago and just put...

    I agree with @Catzzzmeow, it looks like ringworm. Best is to go to the vet to get a diagnosis and treatment plan. Good luck!

    Looks like ringworm. Keep your baby in a separate room as it is contagious to people. Get to your vet and they will help you treat it. Keep us updated @Bartholomew Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    De-Greaser Recommendations for Stinky Sim

    ...a similar thing before. I have taken her to the vet and the vet said it indeed seems like regular old sebum and does not look like yeast or ringworm (which I think was obvious by looking at it but I was freaking myself out about it) and said I should get a degreasing shampoo and use it maybe...

    Where did you get your sphynx?

    ...a real rarity. She has a real Las Vegas story. Her pregnant mother was sent to Las Vegas to pay a gambling debt. When she came in, she had ringworm, so the owners gave her up to the local cat rescue. They birthed the kittens, cured the ringworm, spayed and neutered everybody, and put Cleo and...

    Dark spots

    Being so young and not over sunning. I would get a skin scrape at your vet’s. Not trying to scare you, but we had rescued a girl and she had ringworm and it looked very different than the typical ring...it looked like freckles. Are any of the spots pinkish like a pimple? That’s how it looked on...

    Fun Friday Cat Fact of the Day 6-7-19

    ...home. I learned so much about myself when we rescued. First I learned the look of love in a baby’s eye and I learned I could live through ringworm!
