bites under where saddle pad is

My new horse was recently introduced into a herd of 6 other horses. He has many bites and wounds. He is doing well now but 3 of the bites that are under the saddle pad have not yet begun growing hair. I am very concerned it will not grow back. I have been putting Tri Tec on them. does anyone have any comments on weather the hair will grow back or not and is there a product that works better for encouraging hair growth. I did stop riding for a week but have been riding for a week now. Thank you in advance!

MTG and A&D Ointment work well too. My horse used to be Mr Boo Boo. All those creams work well for same color hair regrowth.

horse bites

My TB retired to a pasture where he took some hits. He had bite marks along the gaskin and flank. I used hydrogen peroxide to clean wound and put Ichthammol Wound Dressing on for a week. He's a light, coppery chestnut and the hair grew back healthy but slightly darker chestnut. It doesn't look bad though.
