Itchy..... um... butt

My younger one has a bad case of the itches, it's way down inside his thighs, you know where the thighs meet. I've tried the following. Washed him with antifungal, applied Gold Bond powder, that was fun, you should of seen the look I got when I squeezed the bottle and a big poof of powder hit his butt, and the last thing I tried was zinc cream. Do you have any idea how hard it is to get them to spread their cheeks with one hand and apply cream with another..... ?????

He's been wormed, a week ago. I can't feel anything like bug bites or such.

He is literally following me around begging me to rub him, it's getting embarrassing when the neighbours drive by and see me obliging.

Any other suggestions would be much appreciated.

He could have lice and there are good products out there, for that or it could be just dry skin? I would recomend "Shapleys M T G as it covers several skin conditions

Justin had a bad case of the itchies a few weeks back. I gave him 1 day of dex and 3 days of tri-hist...cleared it right up

Are there any marks at all on him?? I would prob wash with iodine type soap then apply MTG or some other anti itch type meds

Edited to add: how old is he? I know when my last colt started shedding his baby hair he went thur some really nasty itchy phases

LOL, ya I bet you'd like pictures........

I can't really "see" down there, unless I crawl under him and I ain't doing that with this guy.

Would MTG be okay direct on the skin, there isn't really any hair down there. Kooter is 12, going on 2!

I should add I cleaned his sheath in Sept when his teeth were done.

Kooter! And he's itchy between his legs! (ok, sorry - putting my mature mask back on)

As long as it is not in direct sun, you can use MTG directly on the skin.

ETA: could it be soap residue from having his sheath cleaned?

Your bad!!!! LOL

I'll test a spot with MTG and see. I used Excaliber and I rinsed really well, but I can shove the hose up there again.
