I got a new sphynx kitten and she gave my other sphynx and devon rex ringworm(n). They have been on medication for a week ina half now. Wanted to know how long do they have to be isolated? Or can i take them out and still give them medicine? Feel very bad bc my sphynx cried and cries and its horrible bc i dont take him out. And also my new sphynx hasn't gotten the attention she needs bc of it also. Doesn't even know her name yet:(. Please help me. Thank u.

I think I would keep them quarantined.
You do know, you, can catch it too?
You need to clean and sanitize, your home.
Wash your hands everyone yo, touch one of them.
@Catzzzmeow her cat's and her, bass ring worm.
She can help. She'll chime in.

@Lupi so sorry you are dealing with this now. Things will get better, but it's just a terrible inconvenience right now.

@Catzzzmeow can you share some info here in this thread for others to learn?

@GoldHazel Here is a previous post I made comments on and share in my PM to @Lupi. Lupi had a few specific questions in their PM and since PMs are private, I would rather share previous info I have posted on ringworm. There are lots of other resource @Lupi that you can also research. If you typin in ringworm in the search bubble there are many threads as well.

@Catzzzmeow I wasn't asking for private information to be shared, but just wanted to know one specific thing in particular and that's why I asked to share here. Knowing that all her kitties were affected by Ring Worm, I immediately wondered if it was ok for them to be together? Most especially because it's so difficult to keep them separate and unhappy.
