Mud fever??

My OTTB has mud fever pretty bad. When I first got him they were all up his legs and even on his crop. I bought this EQyss stuff for scratched and it seemed to work a little but they he still has it pretty bad.I tried this stuff for about two months and it still did not work that much.I have never had to deal with mud fever this bad so I have no idea how to treat it. I plan on having the vet out soon but till then is there any way to help clear them up?
I would really appreciate any help!

Mud fever can be a pain to deal with. If its super bad the vet may need to give you something a bit stronger. Here is a site with more info Mud fever - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia for other treatments. Are you keeping her away from the area that she got the mud fever. Try some human antibiotic. The topical kind. My horse has a bad infection on his sheath once. I started to put neo-sporne on it, boy it cleared it up fast.

Here's a good one:

Mix equal parts - human antifungal (comes in a tube, look in the athlete's foot section), neosporin, and zinc oxide ointment (for diaper rash). Spread on sections of saran wrap, lightly wrap around each leg, then apply vet wrap to hold the wrap in place. Leave on overnight.

In the morning, the scabs will come off with the wrap. Keep the legs clean and dry for several days.

My horse had a stubborn spot that wouldn't go away, so I tried Farnam Tri-Care Triple Action Wound Treatment on it, and it was almost gone the next day. It has salicylic acid in it, which seems to dissolve the scab so you can actually get the skin underneath clean.

Im a huge fan of the quick and easy fix, athletes foot spray. I think the horse gets relief immediately and it will be visibly healing in the matter of a few days. I have tried all sorts of remedies over the years and the results of this were amazing.
