Help- Rain Rot

My mare has rain rot on her back and rump...I tried some betadine scrub (she's chestnut so it works :) ), but I am not able to see her often enough to keep the treatment there something like a vinegar solution that would help get rid of the stuff more quickly? If you know, please email me suggestions at <> or post on here...thanks!

MTG will work great to clear up the rain rot

You'll see results with MTG in about a day

I agree with all that has been said!

It's amazing stuff.

Triodine! It's always worked GREAT when my horses get rainrot.

My gelding had rain rot on his rump also...and my trainer suggested a chlorhexi-something shampoo. I only needed to shampoo it onto the affected parts, let it sit for ten minutes and rinse thoroughly one time and it has seemed to work. I think it is chlorhexidine....not sure. Can anybody help with the name?

Diluted literine sprayed on the affected areas will kill it off.

There are a lot of different ways to get ride of rain rot.

MTG (mane and tail groom) - works great but you need to put it on everyday!
Iodine with some white vinegar is great! ( keeps away the flies away too)
Saurokraut also works just dab it on and watch it disappear.
Another thing I swear by is athletes foot cream! It has anti fungal stuff in it and it wipes the rain rot right out!
Clorox works great too! :)

To prevent spreading rain rot around. Drench your brushes with Lysol and it wipes out the disgusting fungus.

Hope this helps!
Good luck!

When I had to treat possum for it I used a betadine based product that cleared it up very quickly but yes I had to do it daily. I even did it twice daily for a week or so.

But, my wb got a touch of rainrot this year and I tried some colloidal silver. It only took a few days and it was almost clear.
