She has one spot on her right front elbow.. They gave me this stuff to use on it Miconazole Nitrate 2% cream... Anyone think that will help her ? Or should I buy the stuff I found on line which is called Clotrimazole... :|

Who gave you stuff to use? The vet? If so, I would use what the vet gave you -- if it's a prescription, the concentration of medication will be stronger than anything you could find online.

Make sure to keep checking yourself and any other people or animals who live in your house. Ringworm is contagious and some people and animals are VERY sensitive to it. I personally don't catch it, even after being directly exposed at the vet's office where I used to work, but some folks do catch it very easily.

The vet gave me the stuff.. So you work in a vet office? Here's a pick do you think it's ringworm?

Yes, I've worked in vet's offices over the years but I'm not a vet, so I wouldn't second-guess a vet's diagnosis. :wink:

It's hard to tell from the pic, but it does look like ringworm.

definitely use what they gave you, and I agree with Jen, be careful. Wash your hands, put it on with gloves or a qtip or something. Hope it heals soon!

Yeah, the cream will work. I've had ringworm myself, the dog never got it from me :rolleyes2:

You may have to use the cream for a few weeks straight...
I can only please one person per day. Today is not your day, tomorrow doesn't look good either.

I had it as a kid. Got it from the neighbor's kittens.
