Had a different vet out recently and he said that 2 of them were returning. I am not sure what he used but it was a one-time treatment and seems to be getting rid of them. I will take new pictures tonight at barn. The good news is that his hair seems to be growing back on the one on the side of his face. Poor guy I sure hope he doesn't get any more.

Hunters did that with the latest stuff the vet used. They oozed for a few days and then the hard scab came off. DON'T PICK IT!
I am pretty happy that the one on the side of his face has hair growing back in, so hoping the rest do the same.

This may be a dumb question but, what exactly is a sarcoid?

Well now that depends on who you talk to. They don't really know what causes them, some vets say its from cows. Your best bet is to google it.

My vet says sarcoids (which are skin lesions, and there are six different types) show similarity to bovine papilloma virus - cow warts - when tested. They believe flies transmit them from cattle to horses - but no definitive cause and no definitive treatment - some treatments work for some sarcoids, and you just hope you get lucky. No vaccinations for it - it isn't rare, but isn't common either - this is my first horse with a sarcoid in 40 years of horses in our family. Our vet has treated a dozen or so.

Here are pics from today, before I cleaned and retreated her - the whole bottom of the scab is separating, and Hunter - I almost laughed at your don't PICK IT comment because it is SOO TEMPTING TO PICK IT!! But I didn't, just cleaned it and reapplied the XTerra - I also started treating the one on her cheek with this 4 day on/4 day off cycle - we are on day 3 and I will start taking pics of that one tomorrow.

Really hoping that when this sloughs off it takes all the sarcoid with it.

Wow that's a big one! I really hope it doesn't do what Hunters did. The xterra is not supposed to harm good skin just the sarcoid but on Hunter it ate away even the good flesh. I will take a picture of how Hunters look next time I go to barn. I am interested to see how yours progresses. I hope it all goes well.

Hunter, I am so grateful that someone else who has gone through this is here... I couldn't believe how big it got, since her original visible sarcoid was the size of a quarter... I guess this was all underneath the haircoat and I didn't know it...

I'll post more pics as this unfolds...

I am going to cry . Scab came off and the sarcoid is still there... just now surrounded by a huge open oozing wound.

Calling vet tomorrow.

Here are pics.
