Two of my mares have these old scars from who-knows-what (they had the scars when I got them in other words), and I wondered if there was a way to make the hair grow back?
Magic's, on the insides of her back legs...
Ruby's, on her front ankle...
(Her's I'm not so concerned with, since it's not very obvious and she's mostly a trail horse. )
Well you can massage over the scars to promote blood flow and break up the scar tissue in that area and then hair may possibly start growing again once there is blood flow to the area. You'll want to do a little massage called friction massage its where your take your fingers together and rub back and forth in one spot so the skin moves with your fingers. You can do it in circular motions or create vibration with you fingers in that area. Moving around so you cover the whole scar area. It does take a few months for any results to come of it, if the hair follicals are even there . Hope that helps.
Those areas are truly scars. Damage was done to the deeper layer that grows called the stratum basle or stratum germinativum. It is in the deepest layers of this portion of the skin that cells divide and begin to push their way into the more superficial layers. The deep layers also are close to the blood vessels, which supply to the growing cells. In some animals, hair follicles are complex. In horses they are basic, with a single hair emerging from each pore.
I have the same problem with my horse that has an old scar so im trying to find ways for the hair to grow back. I know furazone works on open wounds but what about old scars? And also if it does about how long would it take? (just to know if it's getting better within that time frame) oh and also are you talking about the yellow stuff?
