Does anyone know where I can purchase Imaverol online without a prescription please?

In this case you don't need imaverol. Some nizoral from the pharmacy will do for just one or two baths to remove any spores caught in the coat; a one-off bath is not an issue although I have found that a full course is a bit harsh on the skin.

PS: it would help us if you posted any follow up questions on your original thread so we can see what has already been done and give you the appropriate information straight away. We jump between so many different threads every day that we cannot remember everything all the time.

Thank you. I did know about using Nizoral. I wondered if the Imaverol would be less stress for her. A new home and now all this and she's only 10 weeks old- poor little girl!

No, the stress level is the same, unfortunately. The advantage of the Nizoral in combination with oral antifungal treatment is that you can use the rest of the shampoo as a whole body shower gel for yourself in order to help prevent an outbreak in yourself from touching yourself (yeah, THAT same issue!) when handling/treating a ringworm piggy. Typical are the face, neck, arms or bare legs...

Please be aware that you need to also bathe any companions within reach of spores. I had ringworm carried in twice that way.

Here is our updated bathing guide: Bathing (including cleaning grease glands)

Many thanks. I will follow your advice.

Hello again. Nibbles and her sister (who has never shown any signs) now starting on week 3 of oral treatment for the ringworm. She is looking much better. A big crusty bit still, and baldness on top of her nose. Thin white crust around nostrils (looks same stuff, not green or yellow, no sneezing). Around the eye now looks clear of crust. Still a dusting on ears. I think she has a way to go yet, poor girl!
As you advised, I have the Nizoral ready for end of treatment bathing. Just had a thought that if the ringworm has been on the face and ears, wouldn't there be a chance of spores still there as well as her body? Obviously I cant wash her face in the shampoo! Back to Enilconazole- I think you can use it around the face? The cost is not an issue. Got to beat this!
