Hi there. Im new to this forum and reaching out hoping that someone out there has seen this before? My Vet and I have been battling this for 3 years now and I cannot believe that we can't find a cure. Please note we have biopsied for Pemphigus. Samples sent to the States (we are in New Zealand) to a specialist, was told twice that it is NOT Pemphigus or Coronary Band Disease. A short history: OTTB Gelding, brought as a 3 year old with this condition, The vet thought it was a mud fever at the vet check. He has never been lame. Condition worse on his back heels. Presents like fingered/threads of fungi? when you pick it off it reveals pink skin underneath. You can wash it off after a long soak, leaves skin raw but doesn't weep? Just grows back. If it dries out and gets knocked off he will bleed very lightly, but just like a scrape. Around the coronet band its dry and in winter will also grow the same textured fungi things. Hair sticks out at odd straight angle. NO other skin conditions. No Ulcers in mouth. Great overall condition and is a happy healthy rehabilitated OTTB. We have tried steroids (no real change) Taken him off grass in case of contact allergy, we stabled him 24/7 in wraps!!(lots of walks in the soft arena during the day to get rid of energy, but NO Change) Topical Steroids (nothing) Mud Fever Creams (just soaks of the fungi thing) Medicated foaming washes( Helps but doest get rid of it?) Manuka Honey, nappy rash cream, Vitamin A, pretty much all the creams in the shops I have tried! Best results come from a mix of canneston (anti fungal cream) and manuka, but not sure if this just keeps the condition moist, so it washes off easier? Here are some more images of it after a wash: and just some more in general: [/URL] [/URL][/IMG] I would really like to solve this! as i'm worried its painful for him, and also not great for his hoof wall in general. ANY ideas or advice would be greatly appreciated!!
