    microsporosis.


    This fungus is everywhere. Microsporum canis is in the ground and in the air. Little spores will land on susceptible skin and grow in a red circle ring like rash.
    Cats can get dog ringworm and they get scaling of the skin and show local lesions that look like "cigarette ash" deposits. Infection in cats is often not noticed.
    Kittens and puppies are most often affected as their immune system is not yet developed enough to resist the fungus.
    Young dogs will show a few to many patches of hair loss and scaliness and redness at the out side edge (the ring). Some cats and dogs will develop infection of the nail beds. Often a thick crust will cover the lesion.

    Dermazol or Selsan Blue Shampoo and itraconizole will reduce the lesions and may cure the disease. Serious cases require itraconizole therapy or diflucan therapy.
    Some feel that the new ringworm vaccine may help: however, it is not widely used by the profession. The best thing to do if you suspect you or your pet has a skin disease is to see your veterinarian for some tests. A skin culture and a skin scraping generally tell the story.
    Most pets and people develop an immunity to fungal diseases and don't have to worry. Have fun at the dog park and go on!

    Well, that's how this fungus starts, it's not pussy, it's just wet, then dries and goes flaky. It's not itchy, or painful. Looks like cigarette burn, but it can be much larger and be at different spots on the body. My dog had it. It won't go away for quite a while (3-4 weeks). Just wash your hands carefully, and put some Betadine or iodine based solution around the scab. You can also put some Lamisil cream on it as well as bathing your dog with Selsun. Not taking a dog in a park is neusance, just avoid contact with other dogs. But really, it all depends on other animal's (and human) immune system. My other dog never got it from a little one and they have slept together and played and all that...

    Well from what one can tell from that photo , it looks to me like a hive like/reaction lump caused by a flea allergy or perhaps some other allergy.
    The thing that makes me think this is unlikely though is that there is only one. As far as we know?

    It's not a tick site is it?
