Unhappy My horse with M-T-G?? HELP!

Ok, soo I need help! Ok, soo around 5 days ago, I put M-T-G on my horses mane. The following night that I went to a club ride, she was very itchy around her mane area, she has never been before though. Then, the next time I worked with her, I touched he mane area when saddleing her up to put her bridle on, and she freaked out. Now, she won`t let me touch her at all or even get near her. She has never done this before. Im trying to figure out if it is the M-T-G that I put on or is it because she is in heat? She has never done anything like that before. Im getting really concerned because within the next few weeks I will be putting her up for sale (because I need a jumping horse,). Im not really sure what to do. Thanks

Can you see any reddness to the skin beneath or swelling/heat?. I know horses that do react to MTG. I tried some on my mares scratches{says it is good for that....NOT} she is Fair skinned {paint} her skin got all inflammed swollen,sore & made things worse!! I will never try it again on a horses body. I find on Mane & tail they have all been ok with.

She probably just had an allergic reaction to it. That can happen to some horses. I wouldn't ban the stuff altogether from future horses (I love it to knock out rain rot), since not all of them react the same way, but I'd definitely work with her on getting the stuff out of her mane and trying something different. What works for one horse might not work for another-- their skin is as different as people's skin. Good luck!

My horse had an allergic reaction to it and his mane got burned out :( I would try and get it out of her mane and off her skin ASAP

I have had one horse have a reaction to it. Just discontinue use and wash the residue out of her mane. Most horse won't react like that. I even use it on my dogs. I have a dog that recently flared up with hot spots and it cleared it up faster than Vetercyn.

I used MTG for a long time on my horse with no problems. I ran out and didn't use it over summer then started up again. The same thing happened to me, his skin got all flakey and itchy. I washed it really well a few times and it finally came out. Now I have a full bottle and scared to used it again!

Shapleys MTG, grows manes and tails. It stinks something horrible and it looks like its made from used cooking oil and suphur, but it will grow hair!

You can find it in most tack stores.

It is nice living out in the country far from the big city with their tempting bling and fancy tack stores. All we have is MFA co-op. I save all kinds of money.
