Skin infection- wild rose bushes?
Both my boys have got some sort of nasty skin condition on their faces and necks- it started out like crusty, blistered skin which I thought was sweet itch or some sort of reaction to the bugs- I used MTG and swat on Cody's neck and it seemed to clear up, mostly. But then Banjo got it, much worse. He is very itchy and has rubbed himself raw in places and it is getting worse- weeping, open sores on both sides of his face. A friend told me she saw a similar thing once when she kept her horse in a field with wild rose bushes, which mine has a lot of. Has anyone heard of this reaction, or have any suggestions? I'm at a loss. I tried googling it but no success. Will try to post some pics tomorrow.
