Skin growth? Fungus? Between thighs of mares.

I have 2 mares that have some sort of growth? Between their thighs. Living in the Philippines, so very humid tropical environment. Has anyone seen anything like this?

Never seen it before with horses but reminds me of what happens to some cows that chafe in hot humid weather in between their legs and udders. I would reccommend putting some triple antiboitic cream on it for now to help keep bacteria from infecting it and to add some lubrication.

That doesn't look like chaffing too me, way to regular and circular. Very odd. I don't think triple antibiotic would hurt, but I would get a vet out too.

Be aware of chaffing though, always rinse off thoroughly.

I have had a couple vets out, but they are not sure what it is. Original though was sarcoid and treated with xx-terra. Have now stopped with that and we are treating with Tricide, and an Alum,nitrofurazone. Hoping someone may have seen something similar.

We have had similar chaffing on horses with thighs that rub. Desitin and baby powder help as well as washing in between the thighs well after a workout to get teh sweat off.
