So I put fly cream on the sheath everyday to stop the flies biting and today I have noticed these little lumps/spots. They look like little pink blood blisters almost, not scabby and don't seem to irritate the horse - any ideas?

They also only seem to be on one side. 20200823_083016_copy_800x389.jpg 20200823_083009_copy_800x389.jpg 20200823_083047_copy_800x389.jpg

How old is the horse? Has he been out with young stock? They look like juvenile papilloma but they are usually on the face and on horses under for years old.

They look like juvenile warts to me, we had similar on a 3 year old. Worth getting a vet to have a look but not an emergency. My vet prescribed acyclovir cream which cleared them up quickly.

He's 13. Only ever been turned with my older horse. They literally just seemed to turn up overnight!
