betadine to treat fungus?

My vet suggested betadine for my horse's mane and tail fungus. I used it several times and thought I had at last found the solution for getting rid of this itchy, flaky stuff. Well, I spoke too soon. While the area does look better than before treating with betadine, the flakes are coming right back.
After a really smart friend questioned using betadine for fungus when it is used primarily for preventing bacterial infection, my new treatment plan began today. Washed mane and tail with Selsun Blue followed by Mane and Tail Conditioner. Let it dry and sprayed it with antifungal (jock itch) powder. Has anyone else tried betadine for fungus? Any thoughts?
Thanks!
