Everyone at the barn I'm at uses Pyranha Fly Spray, mostly the aerosol rather than actual spray. We don't have a single horse with peeling skin from it - and when I say everyone I mean everyone. We love the stuff. I used to use it years ago as well & never had issues.
It could be rain rot. Are you in a moist or humid state? I'm in IL & we've been having problems with rain rot like crazy on the pasture horses. It's been so wet around here the horses are getting it like crazy. I definitely don't think it can harm them treating for rain rot... you can either use a fungal shampoo (I got an awesome one from my vet), spray, or I've heard listerine + water does the trick too. One of the girls at the barn was using the fungal shampoo but had far better results with the listerine mix *shrug* I believe she found it online too. Never irritated her horse once and it cleared up in just a few days.
Other than that I don't really have any other suggestions of what it might be :/ Rain rot is always the biggest culprit where I am. Rarely is it something else or something that shampoo CAN'T clear up.
