Use with caution...
Be very careful with it though...this is what just happened to my mare :(
So the original lump (top left of photo) she has had on her back for over a year now (which was an allergic reaction to an insect bite), from time to time it gets bigger which then gets irritated by the saddle. I have this stuff called “Entederm” the vet gave me to put on it, which helps to shrink it back down again. The downside is that it also makes her skin sensitive and makes the hair fall out/makes it easier for the saddle to rub it off.
So to help the hair grow back, I put some MTG on it. Well, apparently this is what happens when you put MTG on an area that’s already sensitive…ALL the hair falls off L CHEMICAL BURN!
Now the poor thing is on Banamine and SMZ’s to prevent infection and can’t go outside because she can’t wear her blanket, so she’s stuck on no turnout until it heals. The really freaky thing is that Sandie’s skin is BLACK normally, NOT pink, so it really did a number on her. (BTW the blue stuff is blue kote which I put on there when I first noticed the skin starting to flake off, hoping to heal it, not realizing that it was a chemical burn and would all come off anyway)
This is probably a FREAK thing I'm sure, but just a warning to be very careful if your horse has sensitive skin.
