As title says my vet has just phoned to say the Liverpool Cream will be with her in a couple of days. My fillies sarcoids are very dry at the mo but I expect they may get sore with the cream. What type of fly repellent have others in a similar situation used and what can you recommend. Sarcoids are located on inner thighs, mammaries, girth area and front leg crease.

Be very, very careful about applying fly spray. The mixture of chemicals may cause a reaction.

Can you keep her in once the sarcoids become all goey??

My filly lives out 24/7 AmyMay so stabling isn't an option I'm afraid. The vet has just said to make sure any repellent goes around the areas treated not on it. Was wondering if there was a roll on type repellent suitable or perhaps I can spray onto a cloth and apply that way.

Was considering a fly rug but wasn't sure if it would cover the bits that matter or if it did cover them would it rub? Haven't needed to use one before and have my own place so haven't really seen them on up close on a horse. Which make if any would provide cover for inner thighs and mammaries?

A fly rug will probably be better. I've got the Mark Todd one that goes under the belly for my sarcoidy girl.

second this. My boy has just had sarcoid treatment & I stick him in this.

Treatment is working, so far.

ETA - just re-read your post - I'm not sure any rug will cover those areas, sorry

I would be really wary of putting anything on her, cream wise, tbh - what does your vet recommend?

I have a horse with Sarcoids & we are now delaying treatment until the fly season is over. It's to much of a risk this time of year tbh i & my Vet just wont do it.
We are going to be using the Liverpool cream & Vet said he's more than happy to keep it until the fly seasons gone. In the mean time horse is covered in a Fly rug with loads of fly spray.

Thanks everyone. Had wondered about delaying the treatment dressagecrazy but the sarcoids are growing so I'm stuck between the devil and the deep blue sea so as to speak! Vet just advised me to make sure fly repellent goes around the areas treated and not directly on them. Fortunately our land isn't near water so she won't be plagued by insects but it is a concern. Hopefully the sarcoids will dry up rather than go goey with the cream.
