Horse dermatosis: opt for prevention

Dermatosis in horses is mainly caused by bites from insects of the Culicoid genus. Particularly painful for the animal since it causes itching and irritation which, if left untreated, will eventually become infected, it also damages the coat which will fall out in some places.

Like any skin condition, it is however possible to prevent it by taking a few precautions, in particular by eliminating the risk of exposure of the animal to the insects that bring the disease. You can also take the time to regularly check your pet's coat and take care of it by brushing it and bathing it with suitable products to rid it of parasites that may have taken up residence there. Rather than spreading it with chemicals, you can opt for herbal medicine which offers herbal and natural treatments that have no side effects.

Dermatosis in horses: not to be neglected

In horses, dermatosis manifests itself seasonally. Symptoms appear in the spring, when climatic conditions favor the development of insects that carry the allergen responsible for the disease. They get worse in the summer, when the itching is enhanced by heat, dry air or excess humidity. However, they gradually disappear with the arrival of autumn. The dermatosis mainly affects the dorsal region, the mane, the tail and the withers. On the affected areas, the horse's hair stands on end and the skin oozes.

In addition, by dint of scratching the nodules covered with scabs, the animal ends up shedding its live flesh, revealing sores that are open doors to other microbes and bacteria that can cause superinfection. Over the years, the hair no longer grows back, and large folds form on her skin. The horse also becomes nervous. Its use therefore requires a lot of caution.

Labo Demeter treatments to prevent dermatosis in horses

To date, there is no effective treatment for dermatosis in horses. The most important thing is to take all precautions to prevent the disease from taking hold.

To do this, it should be known that certain subjects have genetic predispositions to dermatological conditions. A good knowledge of the horse's family makes it possible to predict its sensitivity to Culicoids, and to take all measures to limit insect attacks.

Otherwise, the precautionary principle suggests the regular use of repellents and insecticides; it is necessary to avoid going out during the hours when the insects are numerous, but also to limit the access of the animal to wet grasslands. Labo Demeter also offers a food supplement suitable for equines suffering from allergic dermatosis. Completely natural, this product acts as a detoxifier and desensitizer. It is effective in relieving allergic reactions.
