Skin Issue

Hello! This popped up on my horse the other day- I have only had him for about 2 weeks, so perhaps he is irritated by the fly spray that I used. I am going to switch brands to rule that out, but is there a topical I should put on this? One of the areas is actually crusty as if it oozed.

Thank you in advance!

Some oil based products will cause something like that, similar to a burn. A good bath will help.

Hiya, have you tried pure aloe gelly to help soothe the skin? And would help with quick hair re growth too.. it could be the spray,but is it in just one area? I've got a Facebook page where I put up testimonials etc for people that have different situations on their horses and how the products have helped!

It's forever aloe touch human and equine
Any questions just ask
