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.
Seems to have to quit happening

These photo's were taken today after I washed her with f10 shampoo on the infected areas, I would like to know if this is what it looks like when it gets better or is it getting worse?

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

The vet suggested IVAMEROL to be used every 4 days and I have to spray the whole horse. But I can't find alot of information on ivamerol on the net in english

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