Livestock products skin & udder care sulfa urea cream is used in the treatment of surface wounds, cuts, and abrasions. Although the skin is the most visible of the horse's body structures it is also the most
easily overlooked! The skin provides a strong barrier to challenges from outside the
body and plays an important role as part of the immune system, it also helps control
body temperature and makes vitamin D. In certain parts of the body the structure of the
skin changes to perform specific functions, for example the hoof, chestnut and ergot are
modified skin structures and the skin of the eyelids is much thinner than on the back.
In spite of the exposed position of the skin, it is usually remarkably free of disease. However the skin is
also the organ most likely to be damaged accidentally - cuts, bruises and burns are common! It is difficult
to say what is the most common skin disease. What is common in some circumstances is not necessarily
common in others. For example, ringworm is common in racing yards but is very rare when horses are
stabled on their own with no contact with others or poorly managed ponies might all be affected by rain
scald in the middle of winter due to poor hygiene and the lack of shelter. Old horses are very prone to
develop Cushing's disease but it would be most unusual to encounter this disease in a yard of young

There are only a few ways that the skin can react to injury and so many different diseases can have a
similar appearance. The main presenting signs of skin disease are:
?Itching (pruritus) - horses may show excessive twitching or swishing of the tail, rub, stamp, nibble or
?Hair loss (alopecia) - can be due to self-trauma due to irritation, or due to diseases affecting the hair
?Exudation and crusting (dried exudate) - causing matting and tufting of hair, often due to bacterial or
?Excessive flaking or scaling of the skin - a frequent secondary feature of many skin disorders
?Lumps (nodules) involving the skin - may be due to inflammatory conditions or sometimes tumour
?Most commonly depigmentation of hair (leucotrichia) or skin (leucoderma), due to injury or
other causes of inflammation
?Or, less commonly, increased pigmentation of hair (melanotrichia) or skin (melanosis), also
after the skin has been damaged by inflammation
?Excessive hair growth - usually associated with Cushing's disease, a condition of older horses and
ponies due to a hormone imbalance.

All horses can feel itchy, particularly when biting flies are around - but it is important to keep a close eye on
your horse supplies since anything more than a gentle rub could be the start of something serious. Once a horse
has started rubbing it can cause more and more damage to the skin and this can make it very hard to find
the original cause. Horses are commonly affected by skin parasites such as lice and mites, but there are
other conditions that can also cause itching.
Another very common cause of itching in horses is 'sweet itch'. Sweet itch is caused by an allergic reaction
to an insect bite. There are many flies and insects that can cause a problem - although the major culprit is
biting midges. Itching is normally seen around the neck and tail where midges bite most often. However,
some midges bite the head and the belly line under the horse. Horses sensitive to these insects will rub at
these sites. Horses that suffer from sweet itch usually cope better if kept inside rather than outside and
away from areas where midges and other insects live, such as ponds, streams and lakes.
Other allergic conditions such atopic dermatitis due to environmental allergens are less common and food
allergy is extremely rare in the horse supplies. There are some conditions such as pinworm infestation and
accumulation of skin debris between the teats of mares, associated with overgrowth of a yeast organism,
that cause rubbing around the bottom at the base of the tail. This should not be mistaken for the tail
rubbing seen with sweet itch.
If lice are present they can usually be seen in the haircoat. The most common type of louse feeds on skin
debris and scale. Affected horses tend to rub and scratch at the sites where the mites like to live,
commonly the neck and tail regions. Itching is usually worse in winter when infestations can be very high.
Some lice feed on blood and, if present in large numbers, can cause anaemia. Affected animals are often
those in poor condition or suffering from other illnesses. Both types of louse can cause a 'moth-eaten' coat
and some infected horses are irritable. Lice are quite difficult to treat and can spread rapidly from horse to
horse, so it's important to get proper advice on control from your vet. Do not just buy "louse powder" - it
might help a bit but it will not solve the problem.
Mites are much smaller than lice and mostly cannot be seen without special equipment. Mange mites
usually live on the skin of the feathered legged horses but can also affect the body. The irritation caused
by these mites makes horses stamp their feet, bite at their pasterns and legs and rub against solid objects.
Individual horses can be affected in different ways. Some horses have a lot of mites but do not get very
itchy, whilst other scratch a great deal but have few mites. If your horse doesn't get very itchy with mites
the infestation can be overlooked and can continue in a stable from year to year; whilst if few mites are
present it may be frustrating to try to identify the cause of the itchiness. Once a diagnosis is made it is
important to kill the parasites if possible by treating both affected and in contact horses. This is not easy
and requires the use of off-label products, since there are no UK licensed products for this condition in the
