Directions for Use

FOR SKIN DISEASES: Clean the affected area with a solution of 1 part of Greasy Heel & Fungal Skin Lotion to 20 parts (10mL in 200mL) warm water. Towel dry then liberally apply undiluted Greasy Heel & Fungal Skin Lotion to the affected area. Repeat daily for 3-4 days, or until condition improves.

WOUNDS: For emergency treatment of lacerations, wire cuts, burns, abrasions and other superficial animal wounds, dab the wound with cotton wool or gauze soaked with undiluted Greasy Heel & Fungal Skin Lotion. Repeat daily for 3-4 days or until condition improves.

GREASY HEEL IN HORSES: Most importantly, remove scabs that are indicative of infected heels. Using a solution of 1 part of Greasy Heel & Fungal Skin Lotion to 20 parts (10mL in 200mL) warm water, rub vigorously to soften and remove scabs. Thoroughly dry then rub undiluted Greasy Heel & Fungal Skin Lotion into affected areas twice daily until heels are completely free of infection.

FOR USE AS A SKIN TREATMENT/SHAMPOO:

Fungal ringworm and eczema can spread rapidly. Greasy Heel & Fungal Skin Lotion can be used as a treatment to prevent the spread of infection.

As soon as symptoms appear, animals should be washed all over to prevent the spread of infection. Dilute 1 part of Greasy Heel & Fungal Skin Lotion to 20 parts (10mL in 200mL) warm water and rub well into the coat and allow the foam to remain for at least 5 minutes. Rinse, dry, and then liberally apply undiluted Greasy Heel & Fungal Skin Lotion to infected and surrounding areas.

Horses that have been in contact with, or have used the same equipment as an infected horse, should also be thoroughly treated with diluted Greasy Heel & Fungal Skin Lotion daily until the infection is cleared from the stable.

*Contraindications: Pets should not be allowed to lick the product as some animals are sensitive to iodine treatments.
