View Full Version : Medications Miconazole

I can't get Trudy into the vet until this time next week :( Only vet around that doesn't charge over $150 for a visit for a guinea pig.

I described this place on her bum to the vet on the phone and she advised me to either use a Miconazole cream or a athletes foot cream. She said that this would not hurt if it wasn't ringworm, but if it is it would help.

I got Miconazole Nitrate (2% formulation) what I was told to get. I applied this to the patch.

Only problem is Trudy is now messing with the spot- never saw her pay it any mind before.

Will the miconazole harm her if she ingests it?

No, it won't hurt her. But just put it on very sparingly. Take a q-tip and rub a bit in, don't put enough on that she can lick it off.

Just make sure you wash your hands and disinfect your skin. Ringworm can transfer to humans.

You should have posted this on her other thread. I will merge the two threads later when I am on my computer.
