He's been to the vet and I'll be taking him again. I'm just devastated because a) he's suffering and b) we might have to cancel holiday plans meaning I can't see my family whom I haven't seen in over a year and don't get to meet my new niece until she's a year old.
Is it normal that it gets worse before it gets better? How long does it take? I'm impatiently waiting to hear back from the vet :'-(

Twice a day, I make a 50-50 mix of ACV and water in a small bowl, wet a couple of cotton balls in it and dab it all over the afflicted spots. I then let the area air dry and immediately apply Lamisil to the spots. So far, it seems to really be working but no matter what you use, it takes about 10-20 days of aggressive treatment to completely rid the animal of ringworm. ACV is great because, despite the harsh smell, you can use it not only treat the ringworm but also to disinfect the room where the cat is being kept. It is extremely important to keep your cat's living quarters disinfected and, just for good measure, I dampen a paper towel and wipe his body down with the ACV mix to make sure that no ringworm spores have been passed to other parts of his body. Also, I have been using an antifungal shampoo for cats/dogs and I wash Leo with it once or twice a week...depending on how slimy he gets with the Lamisil.
I've still got about another 5-10 days to go. It's been a struggle but I honestly cannot recommend a better natural and safe treatment for ringworm (as well as many other ailments) than ACV. It's the best thing for so many applications...especially ringworm!

I gave him a bath in Selsun Blue dandruff shampoo and then put ACV (diluted with water 50/50) in a spray bottle and sprayed him all over with it and rubbed it in with my hands and let him dry naturally. I sprayed him with the ACV everyday for the first week, and then gave him another bath in the dandruff shampoo and sprayed him every other day for the second week. He looks amazing! I just started using it in his ears for the chronic ear infections he gets, so I'll let you know if it works!!
