Mtg issue!!! Skin irritation

So i tested my MTG on his skin before i used it on his tail and nothing happened so i put some on his tail and it started to grow! like so fast. I only applied it twice and wrapped it. So last night i was brushing his tail and i noticed in his bum area his hair was falling out!! it looks like he has dandruff and so i used a brush and so much hair came out. None of his tail was falling out only the average amount when i brush it. So i just wrapped his tail with no MTG. He didnt seem to be itchy or in any pain. Also he is TB and has dandruff in his mane and all over right now from the weather so not sure if its just him.

I used MTG on my horse's tail and had the same thing happen. It was summer, though and I thought maybe the heat complicated it.
I continue to use it when he has a nip that has taken the hair away and it works great to stimulate growth...just don't use it in the heat of the day.

MTG gave my horse a bad reaction too.

The spot tested on was warm to the touch, puffed up, and flaky for over week. It's nasty stuff to get off too, it seemed to take a ridiculous amount of washing to get all the oiliness off.

I think some horses can handle it though, there are some people at my barn who swear by it.
