Thank you for posting this, just found rainrot on the left side of my gelding neck so perfect timing for this solution. I was actually going to look for a listerine recipe so perfect timing! And yes sounds 50/50 to me. :)

What a great idea! I am definitely going to try this when I next have to deal with rain scald. For those with horses that hate being sprayed - persistence is the key. My mini HATED being sprayed when I first got her to the point she would rear and now she hardly bats an eye. I made sure whenever I handled her I always had a sprayer filled with water and just kept at it slowly until she was used to the noise without being directly sprayed. Then started slowly at her feet and worked my way up from there.

I make up a shampoo that works very well with rain rot that is very similar to what you are using. It is;

1/3 white vinegar
1/3 Listerine
1/3 dish washing detergent

The Dawn, or whatever, is meant to rinse out very easily and the vinegar has a low ph which helps kills fungus and other pathogens and the Listerine does too.

Try it!

For severe scabs try petroleum jelly. Put it on really thick, leave it overnight and wipe it off the next day. It will pull all the scabs off with it.
