Skin Dermatitis from past sun burns..how to heal?

My horse has a raised, somewhat scaly whitish-pink skin patch, smaller than the size of a quarter, on his nose. The vet said it was a sort of dermatitis. I believe it is left over from the constant chronic sun irritation he gets on the white part of his nose. The whole nose area used to be rough and wrinkly and irritated-looking in the sun.

In the summer I apply sunscreen which he rubs off, but I would like to heal this patch before the strong summer sun begins again. Has anyone had success healing this type of skin irritation?

Hmmm this is an idea, just an idea, BUT I have been using Bio-oil on my face and some scars, my face has really bad tone to it from years of sun exposure. It feels really nice and looks much better now. Dry spots are gone etc.......I wonder how bio-oil would work on a spot like that??

Instead of sunscreen, try Corona ointment. It should also help to clear up the dermatitis.
I like corona ointment over sunscreen for sun protection because it stays on and moisturizes. Maybe even try sunscreen and corona over top?

Where would a person find Corona ointment? I prefer the 'other' Corona;)

Corona is good, also consider Tea tree oil, it works wonders, I use it on my horses and myself ;)

I had some ozonated olive oil ointment to use up - in one day's application the flaking skin has disappeared and the area is no longer raised . I was about to buy some corona ointment but this seemed to work instantly. Odd. We usually have some sort of fight about me applying cream or ointment to his nose - but not this time. He seems to not mind the smell of it! I will keep using it and will see how the area reacts to too much sun, since we're getting sunnier days.
