I joined this group after reading some great advice given by the members. I need some advice. I have a 1yo kitty adopted from a shelter that was diagnosed with ringworm. At first, our vet told us to continue a regimen (they started at the shelter) with over the counter Monistat cream. When one area healed but another popped up, we took him back. They did blood testing and then prescribed an oral cream. He’s been on it a week, and 4 more patches have come. Some with tiny scabs ( no ring), and some just hairless patches. He seems itchy now when he wasn’t before. I’m trying to figure out whether this is truly ringworm or an allergy/dermatitis. The vet always seems to be bothered with my questioning. Says to continue the oral med and that it could be running its course. But no culture was ever taken. If this isn’t ringworm he needs entirely different care. I don’t want to be a worry-wart and keep taking him to veterinarians but I’m wanting him to be in the right path to recovery.
