Dermoline Sweet Itch Lotion is an effective oily lotion for preventing and soothing Sweet Itch in horses. It contains Pyrethrum which is a natural insecticide and Piperonyl Butoxide which acts as a synergist i.e. increases the effect of the insecticide.
Directions for use:
Apply the lotion in advance of the start of the season when the midge Culicoides becomes active (April). Rarely, horses are sensitive to this product. It is recommended that a small skin test under the mane should be carried out 24 hours before proper use.
First application: apply liberally to the mane and tail with a soft brush, parting the hair on the mane and tail to apply the lotion to the skin.
Subsequent applications: Top up once or twice daily with a smaller amount of lotion throughout the apring, summer and early autumn. After shampooing the mane and tail, a heavy application should be made again.
Horses which are prone to sweet itch should be stabled if possible at dawn and dusk. If signs of disease persist or appear, consult your veterinary surgeon.
