Is it possible for a horse to have an allergy to iodine?
Hoovey got his first bath with me last week. I used Viodine all over except his face, where I used Oster Berry All Purpose. A week later, he's itchy all over, with white flaking skin. His face is fine, but his body is particularly bad. I don't believe it's rainscald, it doesn't have the scabby, built up feel...it honestly feels like a really bad case of human dry skin.
I picked up some Eqyss Sensitive Skin Shampoo for him a couple days ago, but the weather hasn't cooperated to give him a second bath.
The Viodine is just a very mild shampoo with iodine...he didn't react to the other shampoo, could it be the iodine? Is there any lotion/ conditioner I could use on him to help speed the healing?
