odd swelling with 2 week old scrape
I had my horse out at a pasture, and the day he got there he got a scrape (inside of his left gaskin just above the hock) Seemed like no big deal as he is 3 and gets into things. I brought out some tea tree wound spray and squirted it everyday to just help it along the way.
2 weeks later it got swollen and looked like it was almost fluid filled. Now I cleaned it really good at this point and tried to get it to re-open a little to see if it would drain. The very small opening seemed like it had become granulated tissue. Now mind you this was not a big sore.
So I slapped some drawing salve on it to see if I could soften it up, get it to draw out. Nothing happened. I have also been hot packing it with very warm epsom salt water but I have still had no change. He really likes it when I rub around it, he acts like it is itchy which would leave me to believe it it healing. I just dont want another ugly bump/scar.
Just wondering what other people would to the treat this. I would hate to have to call the vet for a scratch...or so I thought
