    Poppy to clarify- I didn't say that fungal infections have to have a white crusty build up, just that the ones I have seen tend to have that sort of appearance.
    The fly spray we had problems with was oil based, it wasn't the citronella but the oil carrier liquid that was the problem. The areas that reacted got a heavier dose when applied and got the most sun, not necessarily the most delicate skin.
    I haven't used hibitane for a while, it wasn't available in Canada for a bit, but I do think the ointment is effective against bacteria and fungus (so both of our ideas are covered - where's the smiley on this site?).
    I think hibitane soap is chlorohexidene, but again haven't used it for awhile.
    Of coarse we are both diagnosing off a brief description and a photo based on our personal experiences in possibly extremely different parts of the world so we could both be right or wrong

    I use swat on the face if I'm not using a fly mask, it stays longer. I have never seen fly spray burn a horse. My girl has pink skin all over and no burns using an oil based spray. I suppose if it is applied way to heavily it might but it should dry so no burns occur. Plus oil based stays on much longer than water based. And most oil based contain sunscreen nowadays anyway.

    Okay now I am thinking mange. I had overlooked that possibility because they are not in contact with any other horses, but then my husband pointed out that there are deer that graze in the field right alongside them. I am almost convinced that is what it is and will treat it as such until I can get the vet here. I am kind of creeped out because I have n
    Ever had an animal with mange, but I will take evry precaution as I also have dogs and cats.
