Ringworm in Cats

Ringworm is a fungal skin disease that affects mainly kids and older people since their immune systems are not so well developed. Ringworm from cats can be either from animals or from soil types and the one spread to humans is usually the animal type. It is fairly easily transmitted but as indicated, depends on one's immune system. It is treated with both anti-fungal oral tablets as well as anti-fungal shampoos or washes.
