Superficial fungal infections are chronic and recurring conditions. Tinea capitis is a scalp infection, primarily affecting prepubescent children. Ringworm infections, such as tinea corporis and tinea cruris, involve the glabrous skin. Tinea nigra is a rare mycotic infection that may be related to travel abroad. Piedra, black or white, is limited to the hair shaft without involvement of the adjacent skin. Pityriasis (tinea) versicolor and seborrheic dermatitis are dermatoses associated with yeasts of the genus Malassezia that affect the lipid-rich areas of the body. The taxonomy of the Malassezia yeasts has been revised to include nine species, eight of which have been recovered from humans. Tinea pedis, an infection of the feet and toes, is one of the most common forms of dermatophytosis. Onychomycosis is a fungal infection affecting the nail bed and nail plate; it may be chronic and can be difficult to treat. In instances where the superficial fungal infection is severe or chronic, an oral antifungal agent should be considered. Terbinafine, itraconazole, and fluconazole are oral antifungals that are effective in the treatment of superficial mycoses.

Thats what it sounds like to me. because of the scaling. there are different types
Types of Cat Mange
Ear MItes (Otodectic Cynotis) : Ear mites are the most common form of mange in cats. The mites feed on scaling skin. This is a different condition from head manage and is caused by a different type of mite that does not burrow into the skin. Common symptoms include irritation and inflammation of the ear canal. In severe cases you will see a substance oozing from the ear and red, scaly skin from secondary infections caused by bacterial or fungal infections.
Notoedric manage (also called head mange or cat scabies) : This type of mange causes hair loss and crusty skin from mites burrowing under the skin

    My uncle is very desperate and he gets a lot under his foot which bothers him so he cant walk. He wants to know if he can take a homeopathic medicine specifically this one, …king a anti-histamine?
    also he is not allergic to any foods and has no clue what its from he doesnt work could it be from that or going through hard times. If it is how can i tell he because he is kind of stubborn.

    • Urticaria is generally caused by direct contact with an allergenic substance, or an immune response to food or some other allergen, or for other reasons.
      • Medication such as antibiotics, codeine, penicillin, sulf … • Stay away from alcohol, as it causes flushing of the skin
      • Try not to scratch affected areas
      • Wear loose clothes that will not put pressure on the skin

      Good luck, have a nice weekend.
