We are treating a few babies for ringworm. Our vet gave us an oral medication that seems to be working very well & the hedgehogs actually like it. We had a ringworm outbreak back in January with a different mother & babies (uggh) & we were given a pill to crush up & put in their water. He must've been out of the liquid stuff. I'd say it'll probably take at least 3-6 weeks to clear it up on your hedgehog. And if I were you, I'd start treating your hand with some antifungal cream right away. When we had our 1st outbreak, we didn't know what it was & our doctor prescribed me the wrong thing & made it worse. It took me 6 months to get rid of it. It was a nightmare. You'll be able to tell it's clearing up because it'll start getting dry & kind of crusty. Good luck!
