help horse has raw armpits
My big AQHA has alot of deep wrinkles in his armpits and if gnats and sweat get in there it is just raw - horrible. I put swat on it and it heals fine but I was wondering if anyone has an idea to stop it. Is there a rubbing product that helps like a human runner puts on upper thighs type of thing?
Are you sure it's just wrinkles, sweat, and gnats making him raw? This type of injury is more typically caused by your girth is rubbing him raw.
From article Treatment for Girth Galls
Thanks for your reply I will make sure it is not his girth. I don't think it is as it is way up in his armpit/chest but I will for sure check it out as that would be horrible. No, I don't ride the big guy tell its healed:)
When you girth him up, lift each front leg up and forward and stretch it out. It will help pull out and smooth any wrinkles under the cinch.
If he were mine I'd have a vet check him for mites or other irritation.
Sounds like what a horse I just got has.. I'll take a pic later today and post to have you tell me if your horses looks anything like what I have been clearing up
