some type of fungus

Hi everyone

Im new here

This is Zoe and we had the vet out to check her out and he said its a fungus, gave some ointment and said we can use vaginal cream and fissan nappy rash cream, well most of the sores became scabs and fell off, but she also lost hair (image 020) and (image 018) shows some small knobs all over her neck, now the places where she had scabs are making sores again, and we are not sure what now and to make it worse it looks like some of the other horses is also showing the same problem - from reading books, it might be midges or fungus, does anyone have some advice please

The places with the most problems are both sides of her neck and just behind her hooves

It looks like ring worm to me.

Ring worm is a fungus, not a worm, go figure.....
Fungus treatment should work, keep applying until hair starts to grow back. Wear gloves when handling the horse, as you can catch ringworm yourself, as can your dog, cat, and other horses.

Ask your vet on that one, he should be able to point you to the right places for treatment meds.

This seems to work

1 x Stopitch Room (20g)
1 x Canex T Room (20g)
1 x Supiroban Room (15g)
1 x Vaseline

Could not get the original ingredients in south africa had to supstitute - but here is the original recipe

1 x Hydrocortisone
1 x Lotrimin
1 x Triple Antibiotic Cream
1 x Vaseline

Hope this will help someone else in the future

I just dabbed engine oil on and around each scab and ringworm does develope a thick scap. It's usually found on the back and rump.

Not sure what to think - The area where the ringworm is has been treated and now its rock hard, then I washed the area with f10 shampoo and now the hair has fallen out only big patches of skin in the area - is that ok?
