“My first experience with rain rot was with a mare I bought that had a small spot.  I thought I could clear it easily.  Soon the whole horse was covered with it.  I tried iodine baths, chlorox, and antifungal creams, nothing worked. By this time our second mare became infected.  My vet put both mares on antibiotics and, baths, and creams, and most of the skin lesions were gone.  However, my daughter’s show mare died of colic complications.  The vet thought the oral antibiotics may have been a contributing factor.  By this time horse number 3 had rain rot.  We used one bottle of Resolve and the problem went away for both horses even though it was raining every day.
