Was milking this morning and found a ringworm spot on one of my does(headsmash)
I've dealt with it twice before, but it always seems to take months and months and months to finally clear up. Does anyone have any tried and true treatments to help kick it fast?

First scrub with betadine. Then dry and cover with this:

In a blender mix garlic, apple cider vinegar, turmeric, tea tree oil, and thyme oil and clove oil if you have it. OnGuard by DoTerra would work as well.

Apply this paste to the affected areas.

Feed 1-2 cloves of garlic internally daily.

Do your goats have loose minerals?

Bleach, yes it's harsh, yes it stings, it also stops ringworm immediately.
Do I dilute it at all? Or just put it straight on? And how do you apply it?

Lucas' Papaw Ointment worked like a charm for me and my goat after nothing else would. It doesn't sting and it has a nice smell. I saw improvement the very next day and it cleared up within a week. I'd been battling ringworm on my goat for probably three months and on me for two before I tried the ointment on a whim (and as a last resort!). An Aussie friend of mine had given it to me. I happened to notice it in the medicine cabinet one day and thought, "Hmm... well at this point it can't hurt to try." Boy am I glad I did!
