My cat also had ringworm but the vet gave us Griseofulvin (sp) along with pleegdts I believe they may have been Malaseb. I applied both of those to him twice a day and bathed him twice a week to keep the spores from spreading. I also vacuumed the floor everyday and disinfected the house with Lysol every day. I also washed every single blanket that we had came into contact with and washed our bedsheets. I washed my hands after dealing with his litter box (as everyone should) and we washed our hands or used Germ-X after we handled the cat. We did this for up to two-three weeks after it appeared to be gone. I would just follow what the vet prescribed. I say it will be fine. I also got ringworm from the cat (22 spots) and used cream that had Turbinafine in it. It took a while to get rid of it, but it just takes time and patience. It will get better, I promise. Good luck!
