Honestly the thing that will make it worse is putting a blanket/sheet on top. I believe it only spreads if you use the same brushes.. but it's not like the common cold. He'd probably be healthier out and about in all other areas.
My horse had it really bad and what helped was soaking the area in water, putting anti-dandruff shampoo on and rubbing it in, then hosing off and peeling the rainrot off. While giving him oral Vitamin A supplement and now he's doing great.
Betadine scrub also works, as does the treatment by Microtek.
