Coronet cut turned proud!

So update on my horse Sonny. He had gotten a cut along his front left coronet and it hadnt started to heal. Well I went out today (first time in 9 days) to get him shod and it went from a small cut to being proud. It looked like it was starting to heal last time I saw him before the snow closed off the ranch.

I have some wonder dust to treat him with but does anyone else have suggestions to stop, and hopefully reverse, the proud flesh from progressing?

Ps he prances with his new shoes!!! Lol

So I'm using Wonder Dust now but I want to do more (as long as more helps and not hurts). It was that he got an abscess while at the ranch he was at before I got him and they did nothing, I got him two weeks after I decided to not work there any more so I hadn't been the one caring for him anymore. About two or three days after I moved him it burst out of his Coronet and the property owner said "nah its just a cut...he went through a fence the other day" I was of course not convinced but I started standard cleaning procedure either way.

But now I want to know what everyone else is used on proud flesh so I can see if I can get it here (Middle of nowhere).

Has anyone use Vetericyn? Will it help on the proud flesh? Any other ideas?

Sorry if I'm mistaken but isn't proud flesh good? If it's bad my former trainer needs some correcting and now I'm worried about Lestats healing progress on his ankle, that was proud, still is a little and we're just keeping it clean with betadine and wonder dust.

I did not read all of you second post because I had to go ahead and tell you to stop using that crap called wonder dust.
It is good for nothing, its like throwing sand in an injury IMO.

Get some vetrecyn its amazing! I probably spelt that wrong but o well.
I used it on my mare when she got a major cut and it barely even left a scar.
I can post pictures if you want. Also pictures of your guys injuries would help.

I only have a pic of the original abscess but next time I'm out I will get some of the part that is turned proud. I will have to get a Photobucket or something to upload the pic from so it will take a minute.

The reason I was using wonder dust to start is that many old cowboys that all they did was the doctoring said take some crushed lime and get it in there then use honey to help extract I love them but I'm a little more gentle with my horses.

Here it is shortly after it happened.

Proud flesh is like if you were to get cut by a nail or something not clean and let it go how your skin would form a hard callous like section of skin under and around it and if it still didnt start to heal it would start to eat away at the rest of the skin trying to find good skin to heal the wound with... if your horse is healing and does not have what seems like a deformity or under the skin scaring chances are it wasnt actually proud flesh. It is also, medically, called "equine exuberant granuloma" I am familiar with it but I have never treated or seen it treated so I'm being a little bit of mamma

Ah I see. This is healthy looking flesh but the cornet cut you had looks like a slightly larger version of what Legacy has, only hers was a hangnail gone wrong instead of an abscess. I've never had issues with wonder dust but I'll pick up some of that other stuff too and see how that goes!

Wonder dust is good for some things, but I prefer vetricyn for serious cuts or wounds. It helps heal the tissue from the inside out, & works really great on deep wounds. If the cut isn't that deep you could also use Granulex. It seems to help the skin heal faster with less scarring and is used to prevent proud flesh.
