Skin Rash,What is this????

Does anyone know what this is and how to get rid of it? He is a rescue. I have had him 2 weeks. Vet said to wash with medicated shampoo. I think he is biting back there to itch it maybe? Any advice?

I would put some nu-stock on it, the bottle claims that it deters licking and biting because it does not taste good. It will also help to heal the area and make it stop itching.

Maybe put a turnout sheet or flysheet on him after you wash him so he can't bite himself. As for a shampoo I like SOA-ITCH Be Gone (if it is an itchy thing) I have a mare who suffers from sweet itch and it helps A LOT

Thank you for the advice. He is defiantly biting back there. I watched him do it today.
