1 tube hydrocortisone cream – soothing; 1 tube triple antibiotic ointment (i.e. neosporin) – antibacterial and an equal amount of destin – water barrier. Mix all together and slather it on the affected areas. A vet tech friend’s horse had such bad scratches she had to sedate him to treat him. She was at her wits end. She tried this combo and the scabs sloughed right off without any pain. Worked like a charm for me!
