Sweat spots on withers?

My horse has sweat spots on both sides of his withers they are yellowish around the edge of the about 6-8 inches wide an very lil hair. Does anyone have a idea what these could be from or how to treat them?

Those aren't sweat spots. Sounds like ringworm.

Pictures would be helpful since we can only assume from your description.

My horse has something that sounds like this on one side of his withers. He is a dark brown/dark bay and this spot grew in light brown. It also sweats, all the time almost. I showed it to my vet he figures it might have been from an injury that affected the nerve. Told me its nothing to worry about though.

I could be wrong in your situation though. Pictures would be helpful though in case it is something more serious :)

Sounds to me like some sort of nerve damage.
