Equal parts diaper rash cream, hemmoroid ointment and triple antibiotic oinment.... you can just use the generic stuff.... works pretty good on alot of irritations...

That really does work but, the horse needs to be tended to more than your Saturday visits to be successful

Do the owners see the horse more often and they could put the mix on? It really should be put on him daily until he clears up.

Once the weather gets a little colder, the midge flies that cause sweet itch will disappear and he should clear up.

In the meantime Sweet Itch really does itch/pain the horse terribly; that's why the hemmerhoid ointment is added in to the above mixture

Hope this helps
