Skin Irritant Cream (Queensland Itch) - McDowell's Herbal Treatments

Through our work with "Queensland Itch" I have developed treatment approaches to provide relief and healing to all types of chronic skin irritations which often involve fungal infestation. Most "Itch" is originally caused (again usually in horses with sensitive skin anyway) either by dietary or chemical problems or external parasites like mosquitoes and mites. After the original irritant has gone the damaged skin is often infected with parasitic agents both fungal and bacterial which perpetuate the problem.

The Skin Healing Cream contains Calendula, Chamomile, Comfrey, Maritime Pine Bark, Vervain and Thuja along with the Bach Flowers Crab Apple, Impatiens, Rescue Remedy™ and Walnut.

This combination of herbs will discourage the parasites and promote normal healing to break the cycle of the itch.

For any particular case, which does not resolve completely with the external preparation, I recommend a brief consultation from which we are normally able to isolate any particular underlying causal factor and address this with an oral treatment to suit the individual horse.
