Even if your cats don’t have any symptoms, they might still be carriers,” he said, after word spread on social media about cats infecting humans with ringworm. 

 

Common symptoms are raised red, scaly and itchy patches that may spread. Treatment with anti-fungal medication takes between two and four weeks.
