WHAT IS SWEET ITCH -
Sweet Itch is not a fungal based, but an allergic reaction to the biting midge or 'no-see-ums'. This causes horses to scratch uncontrollably and symptoms can often be seen along the belly, mane, tail, chest and shoulders.  The scratching causes uncomfortable lesions and inflammation of the skin and sometimes lead to open wounds.
 
If used as a preventative measure in early Spring prior to the symptoms becoming evident, the condition may not take hold. 
 
Directions:  
  • Apply to affected areas twice dail, reducing to once daily, then 3 to 4 times per week as lesions lessen.
  • Continue to apply through sweet itch season
  • Protective gloves should be worn during use
