Horse skin fungus on face Pictures
Ringworm, girth itch, rainrot ... what horse owners wouldn't do to wipe these words from the equestrian vocabulary! Unfortunately, these determined fungi (or in the case of rainrot, a bacterium masquerading as a fungus) are not so easily eliminated. These relentless skin invaders have been a source of immense irritation to horses and owners alike for as long as anyone cares to remember. Though unlikely that we will ever be completely rid of these microscopic marauders, they are fortunately not entirely unconquerable.
Most equine managers cringe at the very mention of the word "ringworm" and immediately visualize a wildfire of balding circles inflicting themselves upon every warm-blooded creature on the premises. The fact is that ringworm can be caused by a number of different fungi, each with its own subtle differences and subversive tactics by which to invade a population virtually unnoticed until the fungal forces are well entrenched.
Perhaps the most common organism associated with ringworm is microsporum gypseum. This is the culprit responsible for those instantly recognizable circular rings so commonly associated with the affliction. Microsporum is highly contagious and is easily spread through direct contact with infected horses, dogs, cats, humans, and diseased rats. The organism is also passed along via shared contaminated tack and grooming supplies, and on contaminated clothing. Thin skinned animals, young animals, and those receiving inadequate nutrition are particularly susceptible to ringworm infections, as are any animals kept in warm, damp, filthy environments where the fungus is likely to flourish.
After exposure to microsporum gypseum, incubation typically takes from one week to one month but may be shortened to as little as four to six days under ideal circumstances. The condition can appear overnight as raised patches in the haircoat with no accompanying bumps on the skin, or the first signs may be the appearance of increased skin scaling in one or two spots or over the entire body surface. The condition may then progress to raised welts, which in turn progress to crusty patches of skin and hair, one-half to one inch in diameter, which may spread all over the body. These crusts are both itchless and painless and can be peeled away as solid caps exposing a moist, reddish area underneath. It is also possible for this infection to be localized to the legs where it may contribute to grease heel, another uncomfortable skin condition afflicting the backs of the pasterns.
