What do you think, favus?

I read on another thread that the treatment is miconazole - does this still hold true? Thoughts?

 

Thanks!

It could be favus, a fungal infection of the skin, but I have seen similar areas where a rooster of mine was pecked, and the skin changed color from black to pale tan as it healed. Dry skin also possibly. The miconazole (Monistat 7) or some clotrimazole (Lotrimin) which is cheaper if generic generic would do no harm if you went ahead and used it once a day.

Gosh, that poor rooster.

 

That's a good point in that it would do no harm. I'll give it a try and hopefully it'll heal up. Thank you!
