This is a condition that all horse people have encountered. It is a dermatitis that is attributed to dirt and smegma build up on the dock of the tail, and the anus and genital area. It frequently is called to our attention when the horse backs up to whatever is available and begins rubbing. Without treatment the skin becomes thickened, hard, and scaly. Washing the entire tailhead, anus, and genital area with Equiderma Sheath Udder and Genital Cleanser, and applying Equiderma Skin Lotion, will quickly eradicate the problem.


Apply Equiderma Sheath, Udder, and Genital Cleanser and scrub the entire tail from dock to entire skirt. Leave on for 15 minutes. Rinse well and apply Equiderma Skin Lotion to the entire dock. Repeat shampoo the following day. Your horse will be clean and comfortable and all signs of itching should be gone. If your horse continues to itch it is important to look at other causes.
