    Fungus Treatments?

    I am 95% sure that Willow has a early fungus infection. I noticed it this morning when I was doing a photo shoot with her.
    Willow has white dead skin that is on her fur and skin. It is on her ears,nipples and underside.
    Her ears are also a bit red.

    If I have to I will go to the vet but if there is a at home treatment that would be easier.

    I will post photo's once my cameras battery is charged.

    Monistat, Nystatin, or Lotrimin will work. Put on just a dab with a q-tip, and work it in well. Do this twice a day for several days and see if it improves.

    Awesome thank you. How long will it take till I see improvement?

    A few days. Keep treating for several days after you thin it's well -- fungus can be stubborn to get rid of.

    Also, see www.guinealynx.info/fungus.html for cage cleaning instructions.
