Beaphar Anti-fungus Spray
Beaphar Anti-Schimmel is a skin spray for guinea pigs, rabbits, rats and mice to fight fungal infections, also called ringworm. The Miconazole-based spray is a broad-spectrum anti-fungal product and combats fungi quickly and effectively on the skin.
Ringworm is often first visible on the head of the animal, with subsequent spread to other areas of the body. Affected spots are round, red and often covered with white flaky skin flakes. In ringworm the spots heal from the inside, creating an annular spot. Contamination takes place through direct contact via objects (eg brush). Ringworm infections are transmissible to humans. Timely treatment helps to prevent transmission to humans. In Rabbits and Guinea pigs, this disease causes no or mild itching (a lot of itching in humans!). Fungal infections often occur with a reduced resistance, or when the housing is not optimal (eg too humid).
Ringworm or Scabies?
The symptoms are similar but ringworm is caused by a fungus and scabies by a mite. In case of infection with ringworm, the animal has no or mild itching, with scabies it is extremely itchy. This is because the mites dig into the skin to lay eggs there. The severe itching results in frequent scratching and biting. That leads in the first instance to the loss of the fur and bald spots and later to crusts and possibly to bacterial infections. Wounds usually begin to honor the lips and nose, later spread to the head, the neck and the rest of the body. Scabies are very contagious for other animals and for humans. Another type of mite is Cheyletiella a so-called "fur mite". These mites live on the surface of the skin. They cause no or mild itching. The symptoms are flakes in the coat (dandruff). This disease can cause mild skin inflammation in humans, but is generally not very contagious to humans. To treat scabies and fleece mites you can use Beaphar Anti Scab.
