My 26yr arabian - DB - is getting little abcess like sores. They start as a small patch of missing hair then within a day or so they open and are weeping. The first 1 appeared the day after the vet was here last week. I had showed her the rubbed spot and she said it was just that - a place where the hair got rubbed off. The next day it was open. I have been watching him and he's not rubbing against anything. After I clean and spray the sores with Furall Wound Spray - the neon yellow stuff - they dry up and start to heal in a day or so. He's had 6 of them to date - 2 on the side of the nose about 6 inches apart, 1 on the inside flare of the nostril, 1 on the shoulder, 1 in the hip and the first 1 on the side of his belly. All but 1 have been on his right side. None of them are bigger than a dime. They don't seem the be painful and it doesn't bother him when I treat them. Any ideas? His pasture mate by the way is having no problems at all.
