Garden sulfur is mostly harmless unless you eat a lot of it, light a match or if you are a fungus. Mostly you find it in the organic gardening section of farm stores. Just the plain sulfur and not a mix of something else.
I had heard Europe was having a bad winter this year. You have my weather. I usually have snow to my shoulders by this time. I barely have 6 cm. I have a good friend in Ukraine who says he is freezing.
Old fashioned mouthwash like Baba would have used. Listerine they call it here. Is another one that works. I'm sure you have something similar. Very heavy on alcohol, wormwood and menthol.
If there is a dairy supply then an antiseptic for cleaning cows udders.
It's a fungus. You need to dry it out. The antibiotics come in later if a secondary infection gets going in the skin damaged by the fungus.
You may have to cut his long leg hair off to get air to it.
Diaper rash powder works too.
Itchy is always bad. Sometimes itchy means it's healing. Keep after it.
Also it would work but might burn broken skin a bit...Vodka. I've used it to clean cuts when nothing else was around.
