    Yesterday I used a roll-on fly repellant on my horse Nirvana. This morning when I went out I saw that, in the shape I rolled the fly repellant on, her skin was swollen and irritated. Her underbelly is also swollen, lumpy and itchy...she broke into hives I think. It is worst here, as her it is...
