    Fungus treatment on TB mare

    My TB mare has a fungus on her hind leg (the only one with a sock) that only covers the pink skin. The fungus creates huge, hard scabs that are difficult to remove. I wash her leg frequently/daily and have tried multiple shampoos. Right now I am trying a sweat with Hydrocortisone cream, Triple Antibiotic ointment and antifungal cream. It gets the scabs soft enough to where I can remove them. The issue is when the leg is clear, keeping it clear. I also keep her sock clipped.
    This has been an ongoing problem with her for about a year, on and off. I have had multiple vets look at her and give their remedies (some Rx, ointments, creams, antibiotics, etc...). Some help for a while but then the scratches (that's what I am calling them) come back. Any advise?
    She doesn't wear boots, is turned out 24/7 so dew could be a problem, is on multiple supplements including an immune booster.

    Have you ever tried the socks for horses. I think they're called 'Whinneys'.. I've heard people say they work. Have something in them to help prevent bacteria from building back up where the sores have time to heal and not get re-infected.
    Hope you find what works. I know it is frustrating.

    I will look into them. I have had the suggestion to try panty hose or compression hose. That will be my next step if I can get this cleared up!! Thanks for the suggestion!

    Sounds like she has whats called scratches. It attacks the pink skin. I used the green Listerine mouth wash when my mare had it. Tts inexpensive and works wonders! Tts an antiseptic and it drys it out at the same time.
