Aardora helps speed healing in three ways. First, as a powerful, all-natural antimicrobial dressing, it protects your horse's damaged skin from harmful germs (bacteria and fungus). Second, Aardora's superior moisturizers quickly soothe itching, irritation, redness and swelling to deter over-scratching of tender blisters and crusts. Lastly, Aardora’s Active Earth Elements™ draw toxins and allergens away from the skin while providing essential mineral nutrients. Guaranteed results with no reported side effects.
About Equine Ringworm:
Ringworm is not actually a worm but a contagious fungus that lives in soil, manure and other dark damp materials. Because horses have constant exposure to these potential threats, it is difficult to prevent exposure.
Once ringworm fungi attach themselves to a horse, they will live on the horse's skin and in the hair follicles trying to feed on dead tissue.
Ringworm spreads between horses thorough the use of common equipment or padding. Also, damp, dark, and crowded conditions (such as prolonged confinement to a stable) can predispose horses to contracting ringworm. Ringworm is more likely to be present in young horses (under three years of age) and in older or debilitated animals.
Ringworm initially presents as small, circular patches of hair loss with scabbed or flaky skin beneath. If left untreated, these circular lesions will grow into large, irregular areas of broken hairs and blisters with scabs. Lesions are most typically seen around the girth and saddle areas, on the face and around the eyes, and on the legs. Sometimes the lesions are extremely itchy. Itching and irritation generally starts on the chest or hindquarters and spreads to other parts of the body. These areas are susceptible to secondary skin infections so it is important to treat Ringworm symptoms proactively to prevent complications.
Treating Equine Ringworm:
Ringworm is also very contagious, often spreading between horses and even from horses to humans. So, an affected horse should be isolated while being treated and any shared grooming tools should be disinfected after each use.
This condition can be difficult to clear up so persistence pays off. A topical (surface) skin protectant, such as Aardora, will help to rid your pet of these unwanted visitors, and control infection if your horse’s skin is over-scratched. Also use Aardora to relieve your horse’s discomfort, itch, inflammation and redness. And, of course, treating your horse with an extra dose of TLC (tender loving care) will help him or her to heal more comfortably.
After the horse is clear of any signs, disinfect the stall, halter, buckets and any grooming tools that were used during treatment.
