1433. Owner Education: Recurring ringworm on belly area

Sunday May 26, 2013

The 13-year-old had been to 2 vets. Vet 2 diagnosed ringworm. The owner started self-treatment since the skin disease was not cured. Cream and a blue lotion from over the counter was applied on the skin. Still the dog was itchy. The daughter sought an opinion from me in April 2013. I followed up with the mother and advised review but she did not come.

The mother went overseas for 4 days and came back to see the belly full of reddish rashes and ring-like lesions.

"Generalised ringworm is not easily cured if the environment is still contaminated," I said.
recovered after medication and treatment for generalised ringworm as evident by new hair growth and clear skin.
