Chronic ringworm problem

Could you tell what is the safest way of treating chronic ringworm (eight cats) and is it even possible to treat it anymore? Also what would be the most reliable way to diagnose it? And are oral medications an only option now that the problem has become chronic?

Eight cat household, problems started four years ago when someone took one of the cats to cat shelter (outdoor cat) and after returning home he had itchy ears. I didn't first realize that it could be ringworm until one year later as other cats started getting symptoms. Unfortunately vet failed to diagnose it the right way twice. Later i found out that she didn't culture the sample long enough.
Finally I started getting symtoms on my feet.

I suffered from depression and financial issues and still do, but I'm doing my best now to solve this.
The severe skin conditions of two cats got better but a few of them still have itchiness.
I'm really desperate. We are moving to a new apartment in a few months and I'd finally like to get this over with. I would then have the chance to clean the environment and throw away contaminated items if necessary.

I would really appreciate your help and advice!


I don't have a cat that has had ringworm but I have been told that that a good product to help resolve the problem is Banixx. Ringworm is a fungal infection that is very contagious so disinfecting and cleaning the environment is recommended prior to starting the treatment with the product.
