I've been battling with Ringworm for the 1st time since the last 2 months. We've two darling kitties who seem to picked up the infection from their cattery. since i stay in a 1 bedroom apartment, I cant really isolate them but go ahead with aggressive treatments.

my ringworm lesions are now no bigger than a tiny ant bite.Here's what i do.

SELF TREATMENT:
1. Virgin coconutt oil has great anti fungal properties. i apply it liberally on my body 2-3 times a day especially after a shower.
2. tea tree infused bathing bars or Bamboo charcoal soaps too aid in anti fungal treatments. Make sure you bathe twice a day and wear a fresh pair of clothes.
3.Ringworm spores don't thrive at very high temperatures, so wash your clothes in boiling hot water ( if the material can withstand it ) along with a strong detergent and make sure you fully dry them before tossing it in your wardrobe.
4. I usually bathe in ice cold water since it helps to soothe and not irritate any new or existing RW lesions on my skin.
5. buy a small tube of anti fungal cream intended for ringworm and apply it atleast 2-3 times a day till after a week the lesion has healed.
wear fully covering loose fitting clothes to avoid reinfestion of RW to your household and public.you also prevent new ringworm spores in your surrounding from getting in touch with ur skin.
6. Replace your towels atleast once in 2 day and make sure its washed in boiling hot water.
7. Your internal health also plays a huge role in the healing process. Include a healthy meal with fresh vegs and drink organic unfiltered ACV like Braggs(10ml in a glass of water)twice a day for optimal health.

HOUSEHOLD
1. Use bed spreads for your beddings and change your sheets every few days .
2,daily vaccuum and mop your floor with benzalkonium chloride products(lysol) , bleach or any other strong surface cleaner agent. Make sure your pets are not around while the floor is still wet.
3. Steam mop your rugs and draperies at a very high temp
4.Wipe all surfaces with bleach/ lysol
5. Make sure your rooms are well ventilated with plenty of sunshine. Unfortunately my aint but i ensure i leave no place damp.

PETS:
1. Add 2 tsp of ACV to their bowl of drinking water . If they refuse to drink the water, place their paws in a tray of acv/water. they'll have a tendency to lick their paws.
2.soak a folded kitchen tissue in 50/50 or 70/30 Water/ACV solution ( based on how sensitive your cat is . try with a diluted concentration first ). wipe down their body with the same atleast twice a day.
3. bathe them in anti fungal shampoo atleast thrice a week till the ringworm has gone and continue bathing them atleast once a week for the next 1 month.
4, Invest in a good brand of pet food to insure theyre in the pink of health . hence faster healing. Ringworm affects animals much quicker who;s immunity is compromised.
5. if its necessary to comb your cat/dog, make sure you wet their fur first. this is to prevent flying of infected hair which leads to spreading of ringworm spores in the air and surrounding items.
6. make sure their grooming brush and clippers are disinfected in boiling hot water and soap/bleach after every use.
7. RW spores are abundant everywhere in the environment. even at the vet. make sure you give them a nice anti fungal bath after every vet visit.
8.Confine them to a room thats easy to clean, if possible. and keep cleaning the rest of the area till they are free from RW. This is usually confirmed by a Ringworm culture at the vet.

Most of the treatments stated above are inexpensive . All it requires is a little perseverance for the first 2-3 weeks. good luck all :)
