It is not from the ice, it started in summer, it has not spread on her or to any other horses. I am afraid she wouls just rip off a blanket trying to itch at it ??

Maybe try something like this ^.

We have used polster plast for wounds like that but we get it from the vet. I can't find an online source.

I also vote possible sarcoid. Crest toothpaste supposedly helps dry them up. Its the fluoride in it. Ive seen proof it works on verified sarcoids. I would biopsy it.

You can order Pink Lady online. It's a little pricey, but it works well for wounds like that. Some of the itchiness could be from the wound drying out (which is usually desireable). Pink Lady is a liquid ointment that will help soothe the itchiness and has zinc and whatnot to promote healing. It also works wonders on sunburn!

In our case, when we used the Pink Lady, the hair came back the same color. It actually grew back in pretty quickly...

The itching seems to be from it drying. But she keeps breaking it back open by scrathing it thus starting over again. it did start to shrink considerably with hair growing back until she scrathed it open again. It seems every time we touch it to put something on it or sray it with something she starts scratching. If you even rub her cheek or neck a foot away from it she wants to scratch it, kind of like a dogs tickle spot. I tried lotrimin and she tore it right open, must have really stung. Does not seem to be any growth under it so I do not know if it would be a sacroid, or do they all not get growths? Not many vets in the area and have not been able to contact ours yet. AHHHGGG!! The thing that puzzles me is it has not spread, just stays localized to that one spot???????

Thank You for all the comments and suggestions, please keep them coming!!

the sarcoid on my son's horse did not spread either,and it didn't have a growth under it.my vet injected it underneath the scab to get straight to the infection.

First and foremost, completely clip the area so that there is a good "fire road" of healthy skin around the area. This will allow you to clean it and care for it. I would wash it throughly with betadine scrub 2X a day and see if that alone is helpful.

This may be a form of cancer OR it may be a fungus OR it may even be parasitic. Itching is a low level pain reaction. I would first go back to using a good wormer that would kill thread worms. It is probably NOT thread worms but that is the easiest thing to treat for. IF it is thread worms, the horse may itch more intensely and the worms die off.

If that does not help, you are going to have to go back to the vet and try to get to the bottom of this. Deep tissue biopsies may have to be taken and sent to a veterinary college for diagnosis. Ultimately the area may need to be excised to healthy tissue.. but a proper diagnosis is the first step.. and getting to that means you need to clear the area of hair and debris and keep it clean.
