Default Ew, ringworm???

Pog has a strange red, crusty bump right on the corner of his eye. It's not on his eye ball, it's right next to it on the skin of his head. I've been reading, and I think maybe.......ringworm! EW!

He hasn't been near any other animals though, how could he get ringworm?? I'm not even sure if that is hat it is though.

Ringworm can be picked up simply from the ground, there doesn't have to be contact with another affected animal.

A bump, though, isn't classic for ringworm. If it doesn't start to clear up over the weekend, or if he develops more of these spots, definitely have them checked out.

Can you take a picture? You have to be careful, ringworm is very contagious.

Shine a black light on it! Some ringworms glow green under black lights. Very cool.

Be careful. Get it treated. I caught ringworm when I was volinteering at a shelter . . NOT COOL! See a vet ASAP.

Second thought, I don't think it's ringworm. I'm not sure what it is. One thought was a tick, but I'm not sure that's what it is either. It looks like some weird scab. I don't know.

Best I could do for Pics:



Close as I could get, not very good:

This is right near the eye? I cannot see the eye at all in the photo.
Can't really tell what it is either, hopefully someone knows

The first pic, Pog's eye is the yellow flash. The second pic is a real close pic of the sore thing, so no eye in that pic.
