My kittens are losing their fur

My kittens are losing their fur in spots leaving behind dry skin. It does not seem to bother them, but they look like a bump and when you exam it, the fur comes off with it. Can this be treated with any home medicine like Neosporin?

Thank you,

Dana Simmons

there are many different causes for this to happen but one of the most common is ring worm. A vet is the only person who can say for sure what the cause is but the fact that more than one kitten has it does suggest ring worm.

i have some pages about this here
