I'd post this on the main forum, but this is not about minis, although minis can get it. (Most of you probably know Ringworm is a FUNGUS and not a worm....)
My daughter, Brianna, has decided to breed guinea pigs (cavies). We recently traveled to a small animal show 3 hours away for her to pick up two new ones to add to her small program. We soon discovered they were carrying Ringworm and ended up infecting 3 piglets already here, my daughter's dog, and now SHE has it! We've also found out that many other guinea pigs that were at the show have it. It's very contagious.
So managing the piglets is now done with rubber gloves and EVERYONE who has Ringworm got bathed with an anti-fungal shampoo and is being treated twice a day with Blue-cote and an anti-fungal ointment. The medicating has been going on for about 2 weeks now and seems to be clearing up FINALLY. (Just describing all this makes me itch!)
I'm just not sure how long this treatment is going to last. Does anyone know how long after the healing happens we can stop? .....Fortunately no other people or animals have caught it.
