Ringworm Symptoms in Cats

Ringworm Symptoms in Cats

The fungi live in the hair follicles and as the organism weakens the shaft, the hair breaks off at the hair line. The hair loss patches tend to be round, but the lesions may become different shapes and will spread over the whole body. The patches may become scaly and crusty. Some lesions my itch, but this is not always found.

Other Ringworm Symptoms in Cats

Other ringworm symptoms in cats are:

  • Itchy, red, raised, scaly patches that may blister and ooze.
  • The patches often have sharply-defined edges.
  • They are often redder around the outside with normal skin tone in the center. This may create the appearance of a ring.
  • Your pets skin may also appear unusually dark or light. These patches can overlap one another.

Ringworm has nothing to do with any type of worm, it is a fungus and is easily passed to people, children and other cats.  This is why it is considered improper to touch  or handle cats when you go to a cat show.  The breeders just don’t want to take a chance you may introduce ringworm to their prize cats.
