Rain Rot Cures

We used to use some of the pre-made spray bottles that were 7.00 to 12.00 a bottle and did not seem to be that great in getting rid of the problem, they also kept us in the poor house.

Someone suggested Tea Tree oil, wow does it work great and since 7 out of our 12 Horse get Rain Rot easily we are not going broke, I believe the Tea Tree oil is 8.00 a bottle and one bottle make about 2 gallons of spray.

I heard Betadine, Scarlet Oil and Hydrogen Peroxide were also pretty good, anyone use any of the aforementioned products or have some more economical suggestions?

I just used the alcohol you can get in any store. I was taking care of 2 horses COVERED by rain rots. So I pulled those pieces out of the coat and then wiped with the cotton ball with alcohol right away. Took me 2 days/each horse to clean them completely, but it didn't come back. As far as I know betadine is pretty good about this nasty stuff too.

Betadine works well, too. The important part is that you must get air to the affected areas before putting anything on since the bacteria only grows in an air-less environment.

My OTTB is very prone to rainrot, and the thing I've found works GREAT is MTG. But, it's super expensive so I'd LOVE to find a more economical way of treating it...

I have heard Head and Shoulders works wonders- never tried it though.

Toothpaste! My mini had rain rot a couple years ago & my farrier suggested toothpaste (crest, I belive it was). I plastered it all over the soars & it worked great! I heard that it has to do with the chlorine in it?? The only good/bad part of it was that because it's a paste it didn't come off very well, but at the same time it stayed on & treated the soars. It took some scrubbing to get it out of the surrounding hair, but like I said it fixed him right up.

Another 'leave on' product that works very well is EQ Solutions Body Wash EQ Solutions - The EASY & QUICK Solution to ALL Your Washing Needs. I think it's in the $12-15 range.

I agree that M-T-G is fantastic for rain-rot or any other kind of skin fungus. But Listerine is an effective and cheap alternative.
