Preparation H

It was recommended to me to use Preparation H on Chances proud flesh wound that he has. We don't know how long he's had it for because he came with it. It looks as if his wound has not healed properly because it opened up on us once (we kept it clean and infection free) and it scabbed up once more.

What I wonder is: did the proud flesh prevent him from healing properly? I read p.f. prevents wounds from healing on the inside out. This may explain why one can still see his scar.

Does it need to be cleaned regularly during the administration of prep h?

How should I clean it? I was told to apply a liberal amount and work it in until gone. But also read that it can cause bleediness due to the capillaries in the p.f. Another thing I read was a lady using a gauze square to scrub it the day after. It was recommended to apply once or twice a day.

Is he to be on stall rest? No riding? And should be be put away from other horses to heal? He is a beta, and I just don't want the other horse he's pastured with to exacerbate it.

in the spring and summer, or whenever nasty fly season comes around, I'm getting SWAT to help prevent any bugs getting in there once its healed, or if I need to wait till spring to get started.
