Okay but can cause stinging, pain and discomfort I have a bichon who has ringworm on his side and one spot on the front of his right leg. The spot that's on his side has responded okay to the lotion but certainly nothing miraculous or remarkable. The spot that is on his leg has not improved at all for a couple of reasons. It's on a much bonier spot than the other so it tends to be MUCH more sensitive (just like getting a tattoo) than say a fleshy part near his side. When I put the medication on that spot it stings THE TAR out of him and leaves him whining and whimpering and me feeling horrible. I will be discontinuing the use of this and try something else. The benefit does not outweigh the horribleness of hearing and seeing him be in pain. There has to be a better alternative. 08/06/2013
poor kitty the product works well but it takes a little to work. kitty is feeling better. 10/31/2010
Flaky Fungus Flees This product sprays on easily. The skin was flaky and the hair was falling out. The house was covered in a dandruff-like grit. It has rapidly disappeared and the hair is growing back in fast. Wendy has multiple allergies and this has been safe for her. 05/14/2010
service the people at 1800 pet meds are very helpful and very prompt with their service, they are concerned with your pet and send emails to check on their progress. i am very happy with their service and will continue to use them. 01/25/2010
My cocker spaniel has had recurrent yeast infections in her ears. The vet prescribed this treatment and it completely cleared up her infection and seems to be soothing when applied. 12/01/2008

I can't imagine what it must feel like to my Golden's skin when applied. Also, is it normal for the skin to turn bright red after applying to areas being treated? Or is that a sign of allergic reaction?

Answer: 
There is a solvent-like odor to the product that is normal. It sounds like your pet may be allergic to the medication if the skin is turning bright red after it has been applied.
Please contact your veterinarian to report this reaction and for further instructions.

Answer: 
Put the smallest amount of medication you can onto the affected area and rub in well. Following this procedure the medication should be absorbed into the skin with very little remaining on the skin.
