    Ya, I think from what I can tell from researching that Iodine is the best

    Listerine

    I have read quite a few post mention listerine. I googled it and only get a mouth wash. Am I missing something. My big boys got something going on skin wise on his head just under forelock not sure what to use. Could someone clarify if listerine is what I think it is "a mouth wash" if not i'm sure you can all have a good laugh lol

    Well Listerine has alcohol in it, so I'm sure it can be used as a disinfectant. I've heard of tons of people who have used it for things like rain rot or thrush or something. I've never tried it first hand though

    If it's thin scabs it could be ringworm, a fungus. Never use straight iodine on a horse as it's skin is too sensitive and it burns. It will take the hair off. You could try Coppersept which is a fungicide, antiseptic astringent. It contains Copper Naphthenate. The label reads As an antiseptic and astringent in the treatment of thrush, hoof punctures, ringworm and cracked hooves in horses, foot rot and ringworm in cattle and sheep. Avoid contact with teats and eyes.
