From what I've read, I gather that ringworm of the body has a much shorter incubation period than RW of the scalp. My question is whether RW of the scalp can only cause ringworm of the scalp . . . and RW of the body only cause RW of the body? Or can each of them cause the other?

"Fitty Pisky came down with ringworm shortly after I bought him. It spread to my older cat "Zuba" after a month or so and to myself on my neck and cheek. It was nasty to get rid of. I used the Clotrimazole cream on the lesions available from a pharmacy, and washed floors, wiped down all surfaces, baseboards, etc. every week, with a hospital-grade anti-virus, anti-fungal liquid called Simple Green d Pro3 that was mixed with water (maybe only available in Canada?). I finally got rid of the ringworm fungus after three to four months of treatment. Wish you luck, it's a tremendous amount of work that you really have to do diligently to eliminate this nasty fungus spores from your environment.

Thank you for the info about the Simple Green. It is available on Amazon . . . though I've already ordered something called Dry-33, which sounds like it's similar.

My tiny foster kitten caught this two days after being exposed to another kitten who had it. The shelter has me treating him with a daily dose of Terbinafine. Also MiconaHex+Triz shampoo and Ketoseb+PS mousse on alternate days. And I'm spot treating his affected areas with a lime sulfur dip---though I'm not dipping him since they are around his eyes and mouth.

Also cleaning and laundering like mad . . . and keeping fingers crossed.
