I use Tea tree oil soap. I had the same things but I horse was biting the other. They have been together only 3 months.

Ouch that looks really sore. I'd get your vet to rule out ringworm but it doesn't look that way to me. My boy suffers with this on a much more minor level. He gets itchy and scabby and sometimes looses the hair. other times not so much. I'd add oil or some other skin supporting supplement to your horses feed. You can also get moisturizing salves/balms which could help with the itching and prevent hair loss on any dry areas. I'd be careful with shampoos at the moment because the skin looks really sore and irritated. On bumps (for Joey) I used an arnica gel with tee tree and witch-hazel and this has almost eradicated them completely. I'm terrible for picking his scabs off but I'd say in this case best to leave it well alone. x

Also maybe treat for photo-sensitivity. Don't let the area be in direct sunlight. x

maybe photo-sensitivity can be a problem - it is mostly the white areas that is infected
