infection that occurs in all species of animals. Ringworm is not associated with worms, the name is derived
from a characteristic red ring that appears in the infected
Ringworm is caused by an infection of the
hair and surface layers of the skin by a spore forming
fungi. Spores germinate and attack the shafts of the hair
and the surface layers of the skin. Exudate, from the
damaged skin, mixes with debris from skin and hair and forms
a crusty scab. Typically, the ringworm scab is gray and white and
higher than the surrounding skin. Infection spreads from the
center outwards and results in the circular lesion 1 to 2
inches in diameter. Adjacent lesions may overlap and create
larger infected areas. Generally, ringworm lesions appear on the head
and neck, but, in severe cases, ringworm may be found over the
entire body .

increase exposure to sunlight (3) ensure corrals and barns
are clean and dry (4) spray corrals, barns, feed
apparatus, halters, grooming equipment etc. with
