My mare had two acesses come out of her frog with normal shoeing. She was lame, but because the pad on her she had bruised her sold a little. After they came out I called the vet. He said epsom salt wrap is a good idea for the first 12 hours, but after that there isnt much you need to do. He said turnout is fine as long as the wrap stays on at least a few hours. Luckily I've never had a heel or coronet abcess, just ones coming from the sole. I usually clean them off if the get dirty and that's it.
