My horse has mud fever and rain scald, I’ve been treating it for months and nothing is working, even called a vet for it. Any advice on how to fix it?

We use baby butt creams and put it on over top of dry legs only. Don’t wrap over top of mud fever either, that holds in the heat and moisture. We also just let the scabs fall off, if you pick them before they’re healed, it lets more bacteria in and causes more to pop up. Nasty stuff, good luck!!
Try fungasol it's great for treating that stuff
hi my mare just got over it we just kept bathing her to lift all the mud off of her coat it took a while but she came good
