If you can get your hands on some hibiscrub it worked wonders for my boy (just make sure you dilute it). Cow udder cream is meant to be good also, but I haven’t tried it. The main thing is keeping the area dry and clean. Good luck! Mud fever is the worst:(
Turnout boots with pig oil on underneath and special cream
My mare has had that for a while and it was bad, i put mud socks on but they didn’t do the job. I put desitin and scrubbed them then polo wraps
Not really, put some baby oil on and rub in to take it out
Went really soft*
My horse had mud fever and I just got an old spray bottle and put coconut oil(melted) and water in and gave it a shake and every night while he ate his dinner I sprayed it on his legs ALOT and within a few days the little clumps went really so and most of them just fell off and the others I just gently removed
