Vets in Hamilton made a very good lotion called BTD lotion Think it was named after the vets themselves. Blakely/Taylor/Dewes. Probably all retired now. Should be easy to make up with another vet. I know it had tetramycin in it.
I used to use a home made treatment that was zinc ointment and sulfanilamide. That worked too.

Did you know, that what you thought I said, was not what I meant :S

Have to agree that different treatments work (or don't work) for different horses. Had a white mare who periodically got it and pasternoint (such a shame this is not made anymore) cleared it up beautifully. Another horse this had no effect at all... And after trying nearly every trick in the book- only started to see results when we used a salve for cows udders called teatguard active- it has manuka honey in it- cleared it up in about 2 weeks.

Its really important with mud fever to ensure that the area is well lubricated. Treatments that really dry out the skin, make it more painful.
This would sound like a contradiction but in fact thats why pastanoint and the more lubricated salves work better on mud fever than some of the more drying solutions that people use.
I am wondering whether condys crystals might work.
I was buying some because I had a problem with fin rot in the fish pond and the chemist said this is great for athletes foot. Its quite possible then it could work on mud fever?
