Sunburnt nose

One of my horses has is a light palomino with a blaze that extends onto his upper lip. He always gets a sunburn even though we try to put sunscreen on him (baby sunscreen 50 SPF) as much as we can. However now his nose is really red and he has little bumps on his nose- sun blisters maybe? Anyway is it safe to use aloe on his nose?

I'd get him a long nose fly mask and maybe Pony Sunblock My Pony Sun Block

But honestly sunscreen needs to be re-applied. A flymask is good as long as they wear it.

Use zinc oxide (diaper rash creme) to sun block and heal, and forget the baby sunscreen. It will clear it up in no time at all (all white noses here).

My Pony Sunblock is amazing and doesn't rub off. My guy no longer has wrinkled sore looking white nose since I've been using it. Previous to that he hated me applying sunscreen and would always rub it off.

So this stuff is actually called "pony sunscreen", like that's the brand name? I'll have to look that up, thanks.

I second the zinc. I use it on my grey mare that has (had at this point I guess lol) a large blaze and snip. The pink skin on her muzzle burns very easily. I use the stick kind that lifeguards use and she's good to go. Baby sunscreen did nothing for her either.

We've used the pony sunscreen and it didn't work. When you say zinc are you talking about stuff like Desitin?

Yes, like Desitin, but just buy the max strength generic from somewhere like Wal-Mart.
