Sore scabby mane!! :(

Hey everyone,

Yet another thread so sorry
My new horse has been with me for a couple of weeks now and he's coming on well (unbroken). But I went up to see him yesterday and he had a tiny bald patch in his mane and bald patches on the top of his tail(although there is hair over it). Anyway, he really hates me touching it so I couldntt look very well but it is scabby and sore and its bleeding sores and yellow crusty bits too.

I wondered if it was the start of sweet itch or if he's just been iritated by the flies and been rubbing. Iv seen him rubbing his bum but its only recently he's got these sores.

Anyway, his whole mane is scurfy and a little bit scabby but not all is sore and rubbed. He has sudacreme on at the moment and loads of fly spray and im going to try get him a fly sheet.
Can anyone tell me what they think it is or how I can cure it? Any help at all please?
Remember im in UK so universal products or homemade remedies please :)

Thanks everyone xx
