Coconut oil has mild antifungal properties, but I don't think it'll work for an infection that's really set in.

How often are you applying the micatin?

It takes a while to get a fungus under control. And you should continue to use it even after it starts to improve. Keep on with it until the area looks all healed.

@bpatters do you see improvement a little from the previous picture or is it just my high hopes?

I've been using it every day 2x a day ad now as with acorn what helped her s mixing it up missing a day and treating it the next missing two days then treatig it. Then treating it 3 times and so on and so forth. It worked really well for acorn when we I'd that. Saw improvement with in a week after have treating her 2x a day.

I can't really tell whether it looks better or not. Maybe.

But I wouldn't skip doses of the medicine. Medicines are most effective when they're maintained at a steady level. If you don't think the Micatin is working, switch to Monistat or Lotrimin -- they're slightly different antifungal preparations, and may be more effective.

@ lynx I sure hope so, her is what caught my attention so quickly when I went to treat her today and noticed it wasn't as droopy as the previous picture. So she doesn't look as bad.

It looks better to me. Keep going, be consistent in treatment and be patient.

I would not use anything on Chestnut's ear right now other than an antifungal cream. Keep using it until the problem is completely gone, and then for a few days afterward.

Fungal creams use a carrier base that should help soothe her ear and address dryness. You can use coconut oil on her ear later for dry skin, but if it were me, for right now I'd use only the antifungal cream until the fungus is completely gone. I wouldn't mix the two.

Keep us posted and be patient. Fungal can take a while to resolve.

Update on chestnuts ear looking a bit better isn't so flaky on the outside and inside. She does scratch at it but only when I put the medication on it. I'm keeping an eye on the scratching though.

Nutmegs eye is the same as the recent picture treating 2x daily no skipping medications. Hoping it continues to clear up.

I know it takes a while and I wouldn't be so concerned and anxious for it to go away if it wasn't on her eye.

Fungal problems grow on skin. It's very unlikely to trouble her actual eye.

That said, you don't want to get the cream in her eye. Be careful, and just be patient. It's better to err on the side of caution.

I take it there are no warnings for this topical product that you should not get it in the eye?

I'm not getting it in her eye. I make sure it's completely rubbed in before I put her back into her cage. Nutmeg doesn't scratch her eye though it doesn't seem to bother her.

Chestnut scratches her ear when I put the medicine on. And again it's completely rubbed in

I didn't mean on her eye. I meant near her eye sorry. 😓

There's improvement on chestnuts ear not completely better but there's improvement. There's not as much crustiness inside her ear and outside

Chestnuts ear is at 100% should I still keep her with nutmeg? I'm still treating her ear though just in case

I think it is safe to keep them together.

@lynx ok I was just wondering since nutmeg still has fungal infection wasn't sure if chestnut would get it again by keeping her in the cage
