My two dogs both have ringworm. How long is it contagious to humans
Hello and welcome, I am happy to help you today.

The dogs will remain infectious (able to transmit it to another person) as long as the ringworm fungus remains present in the skin lesion. The ringworm fungus is no longer present when the lesion starts to shrink.


I hope my answer has helped you.

Just want to add that :Since your dog has been infected with ringworm, it is important to thoroughly disinfect the home to rid the environment of any remaining fungal spores after treatment.
