Lumps on his back??? what are they ??

ok so recentely my tb has had these lumps come up on his back. i have no idea what they are but they are really hard and dont seem to be changing. he originaly had a wart like thing there and i was told to put vegemite on it.. so i did that and the wart went away. one day it rained and when i went to catch him he had a large raised lump where the vegemite had been. probably an area or 15 cm square. anyway that went away but now just recently there are lumps. probably 6 in a 7cm square patch on the very topof his back in front of and above his flanks. hard to explain so ill see if i can get some pics.

do you guys know what they could be.??
i washed his rug so ill see what difference that makes

My horse has bot fly bumps. Google it and see if they are similiar to what your horse has.

Lucy had some of them as well! They were just bites but Her light rug fixed them up :) he heavy one made them worse as she would sweat and they didn't have a chance to heal :) don't know if they are what Lucy had but....

hmmm ithink think its rain scald... did a bit of reserch and it seem as though he has a minor case...
^^ websites really good

i think its the wet weather. we have had alot of humid weather and i dont think the vegemite helped very much as i think it opened up the skin( i was using it for warts)

anyway i encourage all horseforumees to check out the website.. i found it interesting:)

Yes - think it is rain scald. Wash with Nizoral shampoo - buy from a chemist. Dilute in hand hot water, lather up and work well into the skin, leave for 10 mins then scrape excess off. no need to rinse.
