Its a skin thing...
Okay so. when i first got my filly, about a month after i found 2 spots on her side. On her barrel. They were tiny , like the size of a pimple, but its like a scab. You can pick the top off if you scratch it. Just like a scab. It doesn't bother her, other than being itchy. But doesn't really bother her. Then she got a couple more. She had about 4. The vet came to give them thier vaccines, and i asked her about them. She touched and scratched and looked. She said she wouldn't worry about them, it seems to be on 1 side, and the fur is flatter on that side, so she guessed that it was just that she always lays on that side.
Aftewr a bit, they did disappear. The i found 1 on her shoulder on the opposite side. Thats disappeared.And she didn't have any for a month or so. All of a sudden lately she has been itchy on her chest and between her front legs. I felt between there, she has maybe....8-10 of these same little things between her legs and on her chest. And its itchyyyyyy! I cannot bathe her, as its too cold here yet. Cause i think its a dry skin thing. But iam wondering if anybody has heard or experienced something like this. I put baby oil on the spots and rubbed it in. Tried that, still itchy. So after i had wormed her (twice cause thats what i thought it was) she had been itching her tail. I put johnsons baby cream on her tail, she hasn't rubbed since.....taht was over a month ago. So i know shes dry and itchy. could that be it? I put johnsons baby cream on the spots tonight....so ill see in the morning.
i did google skin irratations and such....and its definately none of these.
Dermatophilosis(rain rot, rain scald, mud fever
Staphylococcus aureus is a highly resistant bacterial infection
Lice and mite parasitic infestations
Squamous cell carcinoma is a malignant skin tumor
Equine ear papillomas
Bullous pemphigoid-like disease
Allergic contact dermatitis
She doesn't have pain, and no hair loss. Just majorly itchy! They come, stay for a bit, and leave. And not just one area.?
I may have to get a vet back, but wanted to see if someone exerienced this, as one of the vets already seen it and said not to worry, the ones she had seen, did go away, but .....
