Verona is correct. What works best dependson whats going on, the environment and the horses foot at hand.
One thing I ALWAYS recommend however is scrubbing the foot out daily with plain ol blue Dawn dish soap. It works easiest when you use a spray bottle full of plain water and mix a few teaspoons in to make it soapy water. Then just squirt the frog really well (after its been well picked clean of course), scrub with a brush and then spray again with the soapy water to rinse. Repeat till the water runs clear. No need to rinse the soap away either after your done.
Just as washing your hands kills germs and prevents colds etc, so does scrubbing the frog daily. This simple routine will prevent and heal many infections cheaply without harming new frog material on a simply deep sulcus. If its closed up however, I suggest using cotton balls to help medication in there, whatever kind you use.
Stay away from the green stuff and anything like it.
