Does anyone else have a horse with sweet itch? My horse is suffering a lot this year and was wondering what products people used i.e. rugs, fly repellents etc.? Thank you :)

One of my horses has the Queensland itch I'm pretty sure there similar/the same thing as sweet itch. We always rug him and we try to wash him regularly with QV also try to keep his sores moisturised plus fly spray to try and keep midges and bugs away.
We feed our horses turmeric and black peppercorns which seems to help as well as rugging them and medicated shampoo 😊
My mare suffers all over her face and body, a hogged mane will deffo help to calm it down and fly rugs and masks as well as using a good fly spray :)
