Ringworm is a mycosis (parasitic fungal infection) which can affect dogs, humans, and particularly children. The subsequent legions are circular, red, scaly and itchy. Cats that are affected are very contagious. 


The parasitic mushrooms tend to not live on the skin but rather in the fur, which explains the hair loss. When it comes to the treatment of this disease, all other cats that may have come into contact with the disease must be treated and the environment in which they find themselves must be meticulously cleaned and disinfected. In a healthy cat, ringworm will disappear on its own in 2-4 months.
