So I was exposed to a puppy with ringworm a couple weeks ago, and I caught it and have been treating it for the past few days on myself. Today, I saw my dog had a raised spot on his head. I touched it and realized the hair was falling out there. I plucked all the loose hair from it so that I could apply clorahexidine antifungal cream to it (the same I've been using). I guess the hair pulling must've made it incredibly itchy, because I left him alone for literally 2 minutes and when I came back it was a bleeding, raw mess. I cleaned it up and put some antibiotic gel on it just now. I'm trying to get him a doggy cone so he can't get at it, since I'm assuming that's what happened. However, how do go I go forward treatment wise now? Can I apply the antifungal cream to an open wound? I will take him to the vet if anything worsens, but right now there is nothing threatening going on. I just don't want the ringworm to spread or make him uncomfortable. Thanks for the advice guys!
