Which cream is best for sore itchy skin ?

As my previous post explained Tenor has been rubbing the top of his tail and has made the underside sore, although i've been cleaning the sores and rubbing in some savlon he is still caught up in this itch and scratch cycle ! How do you break it ? Is there a soothing cream that I can use ?

Try some sudocreme or E45, it will be cooling for him and moisturising at the same time.

My fav is aloe and seaweed gel, lovely and calming, healing, cooling just gorgous!

www.naturaequine.co.uk go into the shop section and under the Salts, Clays and gels section.  Don't forget you can use it for loads of things, on you and the horse!

Nettex Itch Stop, it's around £25 for a tub, but you can use it very sparingly, one tub lasts me a whole sweetitch season, so only need to buy one a year. It soothes, is really thick and pretty much waterproof, heals broken skin and encourages hair growth. Christ I sound like I make it ;) but seriously, can't rate it enough xxx

The best I've found is Sweet Relief Ointment. It's brilliant a t stopping itching but it's good on wounds aswell. It's about £8 a pot and lasts for weeks.
