  • any over the counter ani-fungal cream should work. I have also heard of ppl using bleach, but I am not sure.

  • Creams didn't work for us near as effectively as Betadine, which our vet recommended. We got it from a kitten, the other animals got it, even our horses. Use a cotton ball saturated with Betadine to swab the area 2 to 3 times a day and whenever the area gets wet and you dry it off. Use a separate towel from anyone else in the household. It may take a couple of weeks to go away.
