    If you have tea tree oil in the house in the meantime, when applied correctly and in a DILUTED form on dogs, tea tree oil can assist in treating topical infections such as ringworm along with other bacterial and fungal infections. The natural health community suggests dabbing some diluted (less than 1% – ideally .1%-1% concentration mixed with water) in the affected areas of the dog’s body two times a day for one week.

    It's a fungus and not a worm. Dirty motor oil works great. Used it on cattle all the time.

    Ww, you got me wondering.
    I have a dog who has like a huge boil on his face. The ares between ear and jaw.
    Loss of hair, scabby, oozy thimg.....
    I thought it was an insect bite like a cienpie. And gave him oral antibiotics and an anti-venom.

    After googling ring worm, i now wonder if that is the problem.

    What are the symptoms of your dog ?

    Thanks.

    Soaking in vinegar and water is anti-fungal too.... I will try that.

    Malko, a lump started. She licked it a lot and then another open sore appeared beside it.
    The textbook definition of ringworm describes it accurately.

    Not much success today. De la Cruz not in and Dr. Bob disagrees with ringworm assessment.
    Seeing a Miami vet tonight*

    I am just getting rid of (I hope) a nasty ringworm infection of my own that bloomed the day after I returned from Santo Domingo (October 3). I've been using 1% clotrimazole cream and 1% miconazole nitrate powder twice daily. It's been more than eight weeks, and there's still quite a few spots on my chest. The medication can be expensive here in the states. You can pay as much as $9 for a 1/2 oz. tube of the cream, however I eventually found a 1.5 oz. tube in WalMart for $0.88 (natureplex or something like that). I was using 1/2 oz. a day. Dirty motor oil might be OK for something that is going to market in a year, but it might kill your pet a little earlier than you wanted to part with him. I also tried cider vinegar, it is very painful, although I think it might have had a helpful effect. Pets (and people) can be there own worst enemy with skin irritations. You might need a cone.
