EQyss Micro-tek Medicated Shampoo http://tinyurl.com/6j26zt

and EQyss Micro-Tek Medicated Spray http://tinyurl.com/6rxta8

You can also mix several tablespoons of generic Athlete's Foot Powder to a gallon of water and sponge on the area being sure to work the solution down next to the skin. Do not rinse. Repeat every couple of days.

Rinse your brushes in a bleach solution after using to prevent reinfection.

The EQyss products work very well. It's a fungus.

Yeah, what he said. I use a good shampoo and I mix Iodine, white vinegar, and water in a spray bottle. When the area has dried from shampooing I spray that mixture on it a couple times a day.

His cure is probably better than mine but mine works for me.

I'm with the last two post, rain rot is a fungus. I used 1 part iodine to 1 part water in a spray bottle and wait for the hair to grow back.

I had a horse tht suffered with this for years, I tried all of the shampoos and sprays and all of the "homemade" remedies. Some of them do help, but you really have to stay on top of it.The thing that I found that works, is inexpensive and easy, is to get a shot of Vetalog from your vet. I only need to give it about twice a year and it cleared him right up, totally amazing results.

That is one that I never heard of but I am going to check into to. I have a client that has one of those horses that nothing seems to work on very well.

We have one like that, that my wifes friend kindly picked up for my wife last fall at an auction. Not much that we can do in the winter as far as shampo's. This horse is running with my cows and I was wondering if it could be transfered to them in any way. I've noticed lately that they've been scratching more and some of them have a few little bald spots on them.

Mine always start rubbing and getting bald spots this time of year also. I dumped a bunch of livestock dust on them yesterday hope that helps. I don't know if it is lice or what?

There are several types of shampoos out there that have Captan, an antifungal, and sulfa that works well twice weekly for two weeks.. However, when i have a client with a case that wont go away, I give 250 ml sodium iodide IV repeat in three weeks if necessary.. Cost my clients 40 dollars. Most would rather spend the money than bathe the horse weekly..

The best stuff I've found is MTG just pour it on the affected areas everyday and voila its gone(another use it fights sweet itch) I also use it on my 5yr old half Arab who gets itchy in the summer and tries ripping her mane off every year if i don't bath her regularly. The second best is rose dust(it takes longer and the dustiness annoys me for some weird reason).
