Sweet itch??

Hey there
Wonder if anyone can help me. Today I went to vault onto my mare and as I used part of her mane to pull myself on it all came out in my hand! :( now its only happening along her withers the hair is jus falling out. The skin looks like she has very bad dandruff! Theres flakes of skin everywhere. Could it be sweet itch? I've never seen her itch it but she always shakes her head when I brush her mane.
Please help!

Is she showing any signs of rubbing, irritation?

My horse's mane did this too, but it was because I had her in heavy blankets and a hood and didn't keep it clean enough. The lack of air circulation caused the roots to basicalls rot, die and fall out. Wash really well with an anti-fungal shampoo and use a conditioner on the mane. See if that helps. Regular brushing will help get the dead stuff to come out and stimulate new growth.
