Any antimicrobial (e.g., betadiene) wash helps get the organism get gone. As I have posted before, I had my horses in TN for a short while once, and they got rain rot. Ugh. I started treatment (betadiene washes), moved them back west and it immediately disappeared. Dry weather sure helps. :). I have seen many people post that it is indicative of a vit A deficiency. I can find no verifiable proof of this, or study that has passed peer review.
There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.
