Saddle sores

My barn got a new lesson horse last week, and she's wonderful. But, when she came, she has two saddle sores on her back. The skin is not broken, but the hair is rubbed away. How can I keep the hair from growing back white?
(We won't be riding her until the spots are back to normal, but we did have a saddle fitter come out and fit a saddle to her so that she won't get sores again.)

Since the damage is already done, I don't know of anything you can do to stop the white hair from growing in. The good news is that if the white hair isn't too thick, it will sometimes fade out over time if the saddle fit issue is corrected. IME, horses with white marks will sometimes lose them completely (or at least have them get smaller) over time if the area isn't re-scalded periodically.
