Hi there! I adopted my cat on 3/15/20 from the Animal Defense League. He is FIV+ and was previously a stray so I believe he’s just purging from his street life since we’ve had a few health issues (congestion, tapeworm). Now he has an ear infection that was diagnosed after I brought him in for a scab on his lower neck/shoulder area. I’m attaching a picture. It looks big but it’s a little bigger than the size of a penny. They said it was from scratching and had gotten infected and was due to his ear infection and him trying to get to his ear. He hasn’t scratched since he’s been to the vet at all. They gave him a covenia injection and then gave me chlorhex pads and told me to clean it daily and put neosporin on it. I’m just paranoid that it is possibly ringworm even though it doesn’t fit the exact profile. It has fur in the middle, does not itch, and isn’t getting bigger but also isn’t getting smaller. They shaved the area so now I’m noticing some redness around it but I’m wondering if it’s from the clippers. I’m posting here to ask: do you agree that it’s bacterial or do you think I need to take him back for a ringworm test? I’m so paranoid! Thank you!!
