Newly approved and the only Veterinarian registered product available in the U.S. Soothing lotion for the treatment of sweet itch in horses and ponies.

Provides instant protection against culicids midges, or no-see-ums, that cause sweet itch.

Visible improvements should be seen within 2 weeks. Can also be used as a preventative in early Spring before symptoms appear. Contains 25% benzyl benzoate w/v.

Apply to affected areas twice daily, reducing to once daily, then 3-4 times per week as lesions lessen. Continue to apply through sweet itch season, March-September. 500 ml bottle lasts up to 1 month with regular use.

Important note: Protective gloves should be worn during use. We recommend using The Mitt for application of this product.

Most people seem to think that Sweet Itch is fungal based and flies are a result of open wounds. This is incorrect; it is the flies that are causing these ‘welts’. The symptoms are easily recognized in a sensitized horse as small localized juicy lumps on the skin surface over the target areas. The hair becomes erect and the skin begins to itch. The horses start to rub and then self-traumatize the skin, attracting more insects to feed and increasing the allergic reaction. This results in weeping of serum and shedding of skin surface cells which mats the already thinning and abraded hair over the affected area. Secondary bacterial and even fungal lesions (similar to ‘rain scald) can occur over areas of broken and irritated skin. In chronic annual sufferers, the skin becomes bald and thickened and develops ridges (called ‘rugae’) along the withers and lower rump and tail head.

Severely sensitive horses can become active and gallop around during a midge attack and run into fences in an effort to escape the irritation. The top of the tail and the mane are most commonly affected. The neck, withers, hips, ears and forehead, and in more severe cases, the mid-line of the belly, the saddle area, the sides of the head, the sheath or udder and the legs may also suffer.
