I have 'auto correct' on my cell phone when I text, too. Pain in the arse!

So it's probably Betadine, then. Banamine would be pretty useless for rain rot.

Besides betadine, EQ Solutions Body Wash works well.

Yes, listerine works good! Fill a bottle with half listerine and half water and spray it on there. My aunts gelding has a little bit of rain rot as well, that's what we use.

I know somebody that uses show sheen or Cowboy Magic detangle and shine to get rid of minor rain rot... not sure if it works though because I've never had a problem with rain rot.

Thanks for all the responses guys! Im definitely going to buy a bottle of listerine and keep it on hand...for those of you who have used it...about how long do you think before its cleared up?...
Also...i have used the Cowboy Magic Krudbuster and after one use i could tell a significant difference! expensive stuff, but worked wonders!

Tea tree oil. Best $9 I ever spent on my horse.

I use MTG... works like a charm!! Last year my girl had a HORRIBLE case of rain rot and it was better in less than a week...

I've used MTG for Hoover's back eating rainrot a couple years ago. Cleared him right up, but it stings, so the open spots I used tinactin first.

Listerine will help dry up the scabs. We also use Iodine or Aloedine shampoo.

Eqyss anti-fungal spray, then Desitin cream. Worked like a dream for my old girl.

My vet recommended iodine- not the kind for cows, but the kind you can buy at Wal greens. He told me to put it on about twice a week and to take all my brushes and put them into a five gallon bucket with a little bit of bleach.... somewhere between two table spoons and a quarter cup, over night, then let those dry.

Worked like a charm

The guy who shipped my horse suggested bacon grease.... I did not try that.
