    Default ring worm?



    It started as a raised pea sized lump, now over the weekend it looks like this.

    She's not bothered by it or trying to itch it?

    She's going vets tomorrow. What do you think?

    How did you know I have a small animal dermatology exam on Thursday?

    Possibly ringworm? I wouldn't think it'd be localized to only one spot though. Would she have been in contact with it anywhere? I'd like to hear what the vet says. Ringworm doesn't always itch in small animals. Have you/other animals caught it off her?

    I'm entrusting you to diagnose then

    I seem to have caught it yes.

    I'm not sure if she's been in contact with it? Doesn't it live in soils and wood? We don't meet other dogs.

    if you caught it, it's a pretty good chance it's ringworm then. Ooh, I'm itchy just thinking about it.

    Some species live in soil, some live on cats, some live on rodents. So, yeah, pretty much anywhere.

    Could I have given it to her?

    I'm trying to think who showed symptoms first she's just got that one bit and iv got just the one too.

    My cousins little girl had it so maybe it's done the rounds.. Makes me feel gross!

    Yeah, you could have given it to her. Ringworm is like the honeybadger. It don't care.

    I did read that the ringworm horses get isnt usually transferred to humans whereas the one cattle get can be but then if you gave it to her.............

    Its easy enough treated and just make sure brushes etc disinfected too so not spread to other horses.
