Treatment for Summer Dermatitis

Why is my horse scratching?

Your horse is scratching its mane and tail. Itching can sometimes be so intense that scratching leads to alopecia or hair loss and multiple lesions around these areas. This itching is very uncomfortable for your horse and can be caused by many things:

  • Sweat
  • Insects
  • Some fungi
  • Food
  • and sometimes even stress

But most of the time, several causes accumulate and reflect internal and external disorders.

A complete treatment should be offered for this allergic reaction experienced by your horse. As with humans, skin problems must be treated not only in terms of their symptoms but also metabolically.

The skin reflects the general state of your horse: any dermatosis means an instance of immunodepression. Particularly at the end of winter and when the diet is changed.

1. Soothe itching with oat powder

Oat-based skin care products calm itching and accelerate the healing of inflamed skin.

Itching can be soothed at least temporarily, until the general condition improves, with a natural Calming Shampoo.

Oat powder, known for its calming action, is widely used in our cosmetics for its inherent benefits. It soothes pruritus or allergic reactions.

The wash is made from sugar beet molasses and is hypoallergenic, ultra-gentle and can be used even on wounds and lesions. All damaged areas can be washed with the Calming Shampoo 067 005.

It is advised against using any shampoos or cleansers containing irritants. 

After soothing the irritated areas, apply Healing Balm 055 007 to all small lesions and exposed areas.

2. Repair damaged areas thanks to the healing active ingredients in honey

The benefits of honey in the healing of wounds.

A unique balm that concentrates all the benefits of the products of the hive. 

  • Honey slows down bacterial proliferation and stimulates the regeneration of epidermal cells. It combines moisturising, nourishing and antioxidant properties. It is a powerful antiseptic.
  • Propolis boosts collagen and elastin production and helps to stimulate cell regeneration and multiplication.
  • Beeswax increases the protective power of the balms due to its vitamin A content, which gives it moisturising and protective properties.
  • Pollen is rich in Vitamin E and Selenium which protect cell membranes. It also contains Beta-carotene and Vitamin B with moisturising powers and Vitamin A, which makes it an excellent anti-oxidant.

Daily application to all exposed areas helps relieve tightness and promotes the healing process.

The areas to be soothed can first be treated with a Calming Shampoo.
