Re: [RC] sulphur dip - Debbyly
The horse kept having a sore back. I tried all sorts of saddles and saddle
pads and nothing worked. I thought it might be a fungus on his back. No one
I talked to including a couple of vets thought that it might be fungus. My
husband is a dermatologist and he agreed to do a scraping and culture it.
The sores were first kind of powdery and the hair would pull out and it would
be a little scaly underneath. Jeff cultured it and it grew out fungus. The
sulfur dip worked. We used it daily for a couple of weeks and then once in a
while. The horse has only a couple very mild recurrences in the last few
years and a couple of times with the dip and it clears up. The dip is also
good for mites and some other skin problems.
