MTG for dry skin

Has anyone used MTG for dry skin?

My older horse that has been so thin is slowly looking better. But he has terrible dry skin. It was suggested to me to use MTG.

Perhaps someone else had tried it, but MTG has sulfer in it, which actually dries the skin out....I wouldn't expect it to do what you want. I would use something with aloe in it.

On the seventh day, he Painted the good ones.

I am having the same problem except it mostly happens in my horses mane. I have conditioned and made sure to wash all the conditioner out and Equiderma. None of it really works and her mane is missing chunks from where it itches so bad. Any ideas? I am open to all!!!

Everyone I know has used MTG to great success with itch.. Kelty's never had it, but I use it on his coat in bare places, on his mane and tail, and even on a rash on his nose. I've liked it..

Um I guess you could use vaseline or like organic oil of some kind. Like coconut oil or something? It should keep it from drying out, and therefore make it less itchy.
Hope this helps, let us know.
