Itchy Sore on Neck?????

Hi Everyone,
I have a 2.5 yr. Old buckskin that developed a sore on her neck last mid summer. She constanly scratches it with her rear hoof and keeps it open. I had her into the vet. And they did some scrapes and nothing was found. The vet gave her Tucoprim powder and had us put Otomax on topicaly. It seemed to have started to get a little better ad now it is back to where it was. We have tried blue coat, red coat, vetrycin, ..... Do not know what next.?.? I have a few pics attached.







Thank you all
Steve

Hmm... Try taking her to the vet? If what your vet did didn't work and he/she won't reevaluate it, try another vet.

When was it 'better'? Prior to the cold and snow?

Some topical treatments are not as effective in the cold.

It was at the start of the cold season when we used the antibiotics and the Otomax topical and started to look a little better and then went back to the same. She was seeming a little lathargic before the antibiotics and after a few days snapped right out of that but the itching continued.

If at all possible, try getting a blanket with a neck cover and shaving the area around it, so that it might prevent spreading and make treatment easier... If it does have something to do with ice, a blanket with a neck cover would stop it...

Looks like it could be ringworm. You can try bleach water or any athlete's foot/antifungal prep like Tinactin or Lotrimin. Since it's winter, I'd go with a spray powder instead of a cream or ointment, if you choose to go the antifungal/athlete's foot route. If you do decide to try bleach water, dilute it 10:1 (10 parts water to 1 part bleach) and yes, it will sting a bit. At any rate, good luck.
