Ringworm Carrier - Can it resolve without treatment?[/b]
Kitty was diagnosed as a ringworm carrier by a lab culture 6 months ago. His occasional lesions around the ears are gone as applications of Clotrimazole (anti-fungal ointment) are effective.
Q: Must I treat him with pills (Griseofulvin or similar) to clear him of the carrier status or might it completly go away on its own?
I've read that the LESIONS will eventually clear up without treatment, but I have not gotten a clear answer about whether his CARRIER STATUS will also clear without treatment. He's 18 months old, very healthy and trim. I have no other animals and neither my boyfriend or I, who handle him often, have gotten ringworm.
