  1. Pingback:Cat Ringworm – PoC

  2. Thank you for posting this. Several years ago I got some sort of intensely itchy spots on my fingers, legs and arms. I guessed from what I read it was some fungus, perhaps ringworm. I tried many creams and ointments to no avail. I read about UVB and ordered a UVB light online for under $100. Like you it cleared up after a couple short exposures. Living in the USA a visit to the doctor would have cost much more than the cost of the light. We also have a couple of cats.

  3. Great discovery and interesting that doctors haven’t been up front about it, maybe because if a patient uses it too much it could cause cancer. Good that you cautioned to use it sparingly. They are also reportedly used to treat acne. I bought a cat’s drinking fountain with one in it, but it’s hidden inside a tube where the water flows over it. I wonder though if it does penetrate the plastic. There seems to be various intensities of UV light bulbs where we can buy them, costing from a few dollars to over a hundred for medical grade. I’ll remember this treatment if/when I need it, or even if I see someone who does. Thanks Michael.
