help my chinchilla!!

Hi everyone,

I'm looking for some advice on treating a Chinchilla with ringworm. He started losing fur around his nose a few days ago. I took him to the vet today. I was given Tresaderm and was told to put it on the affected area twice daily. I was reading about other Chinchilla owners' experiences who said that the Tresaderm did not help and the ringworm just got worse. Has anyone had any success using this treatment? I've seen a lot of online posts about mixing Tinactin with the dust bath. Would this be more effective? Should I do this in addition to using the Tresaderm? I really wanted to ask the vet these questions, but she was pretty much in and out of the room..

Also! If I should be including dust baths in his treatment, is Desenex just as good as Tinactin??? I'm having a hard time finding the powder, but will keep looking if necessary.
