A word of caution on the Nizoral Shampoo. Heck this a word of caution for ALL horse products.

Check YOURSELF for allergies. I tried the Nizoral shampoo and almost killed myself doing it. It turns out I am highly allergic to it. I was borderline anaphylactic shock when I got to the ER. My airways were closing and my throat and tongue were swelling rapidly. They tubed me in the ambulance, and I got lucky that one of the EMT's was a horse person and recognized the smell of the shampoo to give my ER Doctor a heads up on one possible cause of the reaction. It turns out he was right.

A good friend of mine is severely allergic to MTG. The sulfur in it makes her break out in hives and itch like a mangy dog! When her guys need MTG she calls me. I use that stuff on the dogs, the horse, and I've even used it on the hubby LOL.

OMG - poor you, what a terrible fright you must have had. I've never heard of a reaction like that before.

On the rare occasions mine get rain rot I always use Listerine (The old original dirty orange kind). I just loosen the scabs , pour it straight on, and let dry. I have never had to treat more than twice.

Old Dirty orange kind ? What? Can you explain this to me? My horse has rainrot and bathing only made the scabs softer so I could pull them off but that's about it.. =/

And I want to try the vitamin A injectable but waiting on my vet for that

With the Nizoral you don't have to even loosen the scabs - just wash and work in well - doesn't sting either.

Mix the Nizoral with hand hot water in a pump spray bottle and then spray onto the horse and work well in with your hands or a plastic curry comb. With the mix hot it goes well into the coat easily.

So then do you towel dry or how do you rinse it ?

It could be bacterial. A lot of "rain rot" is caused by Dermatophilus congolensis. This bacteria responds to penicillin. Topical neosporin can also help. If the problem is caused by Dermatophilus congolensis, the hair will come out in little chunks that have thick dandruff at the base. This one can grow on you as well as your horse.
