Sweet Itch – Essentially this is an allergy to the saliva from the Culicoides midge which is a small winged fly. To reduce exposure to midges, where possible, keep horses away from wet conditions and woodlands. A good rug can help to prevent biting as well.
Prevent midges biting and support calm, healthy, itch-free skin.
If treated prior to the midge season, in very early spring, you can guard against the onset of rubbing and scratching or better know as sweet itch .
