A cationic, or non-sudsing shampoo/cleaner that in its properly diluted form is used in the treatment of rainscald, rainrot, ringworm, summer sores, girth itch, and other fungal and bacterial skin problems especially those involving large areas of the horse's body.
Mix 1 oz to 1 gallon of water to effectively kill fungal and bacterial problems at the root of the problem.
I have long loved Healing Tree products - the TZon cream worked miracles on my TB's rain rot. On the suggestion of a friend, I bought the Tea Clenz for cleaning my brushes (and other barn items). I just put some in a bucket of warm water, allow my brushes to soak and the dry in the sun. It cleans without soap or bleach. I keep it on hand for all sorts of things where I need to control the ick but don't want to risk chemical residue coming into contact with my horse.
I have used this for rain rot/scratches and other skin issues as well as spraying my horses' soles to help promote healthy frogs. It took longer than the advertised 3 days to help the rain rot but with continued application it did clear up in about a month. Overall a good value because one bottle of concentrate yields a lot of diluted solution.
After mis-diagnosing my horses skin condition for hives, I dug into the areas more and saw tiny black dots and rough, surface skin. Actually looked somewhat like hives at times. Horses were a little lethargic, kept to themselves and along with flies, were trully miserable. Not much rubbing either. Using Teatree Clenz according to directions they were different horses the second day.hide is flush now and non-irritated. I have one more day of application and then will brush black particles off with also teatree clenzed grooming supplies. Thank you Teatree Clenz, you saved my beautiful horses.
