Ringworm is very similar to mange. The Hedgehogs fur and spines fall out, which starts on the face. Crusty lumps appear on the skin, as skin flakes. The spines look pussy at the base, and are bent. The Hedgehog may also have bleeding scabs.


- Please read Here for more a more in depth view.

- You can use Almond oil with a few drops of Tea Tree oil.

- Then brush off the loose skin with an old Tooth Brush.

- Bathe the Hedgehog in IMAVEROL solution every 3 or 4 Days, for 4 baths.

- Also use one of the following over the counter Anti fungals on the affected areas daily- Daktarin, Canestan, Tinaderm or Scholl athletes foot cream.
- Tea Tree cream can be used. You can buy this from a Health food shop or Chemist.

- It has been found that using an Anti fungal or Tea Tree cream on the Hedgehogs ears and face is better for the Hedgehog than using Imaverol.

- It is wise to treat for both Mites & Ringworm when a Hedgehog is found with either, because they are so similar.
