My girlfriend recently started getting a rash on her arm and we figured out it was ringworm. She had been holding sneezers a couple of days ago and maybe forgot to wash her hands. What does ringworm look like on a hedgehog? He does have dry skin and is losing a little bit of fur cuz i clean his bag out every day and there's some fur in there.... If he does have ringworm, what can i do to fix it?

I had taken him to the vet for sneezing recently (hence the name Sneezers) and he noted the fur loss and gave him some Revolution. If it was ring worm, could the vet do anything anyway?

Was your girlfriend diagnosed with ringworm? It's easier to diagnose a person than a hedgehog. The vet can treat ringworm.

If all you are finding is some hair in the hedgie bag, they do loose fur, some more than others.
