My WB/TB has rainscald on his head (one side along his ear and above his left eye and cheek). It's rather unsightly to say the least, and at present I am treating it using Camrosa or Sudacrem. I thought I'd got on top of it, but it has returned and is obviously itchy so I've started the Camrosa again. Any ideas on treating this? First time he's had it, but he does suffer from mud fever which strangely he hasnt got this year (yet!).

A quick wash off with Hibiscrub has worked for my chap. He had a touch on his ears and on his flank at the begginning of winter which are all cleared up. Then spotted a little bit on his withers which I washed off last weekend, and already looking far better.

I thought rainscald was caused by gram +ve bacteria Dermatophilus Congolensis? Which hates oxygen so access to dry air is a good way to killing it off?
