Localized hair loss on the horse's head

Different reasons

There are three main possible causes, each requiring different care:

- atopy: this is hypersensitivity to environmental allergens (mites, pollens) linked to a failure of the skin barrier and heightened immune sensitivity. 

- Insect scratching, which causes hair to be pulled out, as the head is easy for the horse to scratch.

- photosensitization

Step 1: GENTLE CLEANING
Step 1: GENTLE CLEANING

Avoid conventional anti-bacterial soaps, which are too harsh on the skin.

Wet the area with a sponge. Apply a small dab of SHAMPOO tea tree (very sufficient), rub gently and leave on for 2 minutes. 

Rinse with clear water using the sponge. 

Repeat every 4 or 5 days (no more, no less).

In the case of atopic dermatitis or photosensitization, itching appears once the problem is well developed. It's not caused by insects, but by skin that's so dry it cracks and itches. 

Applying CUTENE will help protect, heal and stimulate regrowth. On the first application, Cutene will accelerate the shedding of dead hairs to help new ones grow back. Reapply when Cutene is no longer visible.

Itching can be due to insect bites, but also to acid sweat (not necessarily visible).

Get into the habit of wiping your horse's head with a sponge and clean water, paying particular attention to the areas where perspiration runs off.

In the event of itching, it's essential to soothe it quickly and repair the lesions at the same time. DERFEN ORIGINAL CREAM has been designed for this purpose and can be applied to all skin types. The CLEAR version also works, but needs to be applied more often.
