Itch & Rash
Aardora helps speed healing in three ways. First, Aardora's unique moisturizers soothe itch, irritation and swelling to deter the over-scratching of tender rashes. Second, Aardora serves as an antimicrobial dressing in order to protect raw, damaged patches from harmful germs (bacteria and fungus). Lastly, Aardora’s Active Earth Elements™ draw toxins and allergens away from your animal's skin while providing essential mineral nutrients. Guaranteed results with no reported side effects.
About Itch & Rash, Causes & Symptoms:
Itch and rash, also known as dermatitis, has a range of causes including bacterial infection, fungal infection, parasites, mites, allergic reaction, nutritional deficiency, or sensitivity to an irritating substance. Common symptoms are dry skin, swelling and reddened irritation. Although most itchy conditions are not dangerous, an animal's reaction (rubbing, biting) can cause serious problems such as hair loss, crusty lesions, infection and fluid-filled blisters. So, it is important to treat these conditions carefully and proactively.
How to Care for a farm animal with Dermatitis Symptoms:
Whether you are treating a cow, goat, sheep or pig, your first goal is to relieve your animal's discomfort, itch and inflammation. A fast-acting topical cream can soothe irritation and deter your animal's need to scratch. A topical (surface) skin protectant, such as Aardora, will also lower your animal's risk of infection, particularly if their skin is extremely irritated and raw. And, of course, treating your animal with an extra dose of TLC (tender loving care) will help him or her to heal more comfortably. Give your horse extra hugs, treats, and attention.
After you’ve directly treated your animal's skin, try to restrict their access to the wound site (if possible) by covering the affected area with bandages, using a muzzle, or placing them in an environment that has few hard surfaces to rub against. If your animal rubs or repeatedly bites these itchy areas, it can cause serious lesions, baldness and infection. So, in the first few days of treatment, monitor your animal frequently daily to make sure that the lesions are not expanding.
During the Healing Process...
Throughout the healing process, try to maintain your animal's overall health by obeying a consistent high-quality diet regimen and using non-irritating grooming products. Keep in mind that an animal can develop dry, dull or itchy skin in reaction to a malnourished diet, over-bathing, under-brushing or to a chemical-filled shampoo. In general, you can help reserve your animal's natural skin moisture by not over-bathing or over-using soap; hosing down especially dirty areas is sufficient in most cases to keep their skin/coat clean in between monthly or bi-monthly washings.
Finally, keep the animal's pen (living area) clean and dry so that bacteria, fungus and parasites don't have a place to breed. And, keep fields clean from irritating brush, stinging nettles, etc.
