    This is great! Finally I have a resource that says I don't have to isolate those puppies with M. Gypseum

    Hi all,

    Dropping this message here so that others can weigh in - 


    Hi,  I am a foster for a rescue group for the last 20 years.  I have seen lots of ringworm, but this article was wonderful and explained all the mysteries!  I have a professional woods lamp, but am lacking a microscope.  Since money is an issue, what do you suggest I buy?
    Thank you so much for clarifying so much.
