Help! Even the vet doesn't know what it is! My 12 year old QH gelding has some strange horizontal swellings in the fascia/subq tissue over his shoulders. On bad days, it moves over his girth area and rump as well. They are not hot, but he does become sensitive. After trying herbal skin tx, as well as a good omega3-6 blend to mild effect, the vet thought it was time for the big guns - dex to no effect, antihistamines to no effect. I am maintaining him now with cool water baths to soothe, hoping for a miracle. I purchased him in january of this year, but have known him for 5 years. He is a sensitive guy, but his skin is usually only itchy at this time of year, which we treat with bathing, etc. I can send pictures if anyone thinks they can help.
Thanks! I can't wait to see your suggestions.
