You can distract him, like jaydee suggested. A treat right after applying can work wonders too. Don't let him see the container, just put the cream on your finger. You can lift the opposite leg for application, so he stands still, also. It should get better with healing, less sensitivity. The cream might sting or burn, so it's really no surprise that he's not so happy about it.

i tested it on a cut i had on my hand, it doesnt sting. and i never let him see the container, he just kind of knows. You know that 6th sense horses have. And oh trust me, he gets lots of love after im done, because i can only imagine what it feels like to have something rubbed (no matter how gently i try to do it) onto a gash larger than my hand. :( thank you!

Okay, then you need to go in with a " that will make you feel better" attitude, not " I know it hurts and you'll try to avoid it"
My Billy -bad-a**, herd boss, stand-offish TB used to literally show me where he was hurt and stick his head under my arm

Romeo has taken so many beatings, he has never been the top of the pack. Hahahaha, he never looked hurt or acted injured, but as you can see, he was. hahaha
