Does anyone know of saline base products for rainfall rot?
the chemicals we used to use to treat wounds and infections. Simply flushing or soaking with saline, and removing jetsam from the area, then allowing it to thoroughly dry, is effective to treat precipitation rot. In severe cases antibiotics may be needed, since the infective organism is not a fungus, but has both bacterial and fungal properties. For early cases of rain rot, saline soaking of sores, and removal of scabs, and keeping the areas dry, is the best treatment, beside the least harm to healthy tissue. Saline is also the best wound treatment, so it should be a staple contained by your first aid supplies.
It is fine to also apply antibacterial/antifungal ointment to the sores, as long as they are completely cleansed and dried first.
But I do not think a saline solution will clear up a fungus. Normally you need somethinig that is an anti-fungal. Betadine or hibitane are both examples of products that can be applied to a fungus, worked surrounded by well so its down to the skin (perhaps use an old toothbrush to get the betadine right down) allow it to sit for five minutes, and later wash it totally off. This may need to be repeated several times to be impressive. If the rain rot does not clear up with this, then you may stipulation a product from the vet that has a stronger type of agent, and may even include a cortisone to relieve inflamation.
I don't think saline will do these things. Saline will cleanse skin, so if the fugus is mortal caused by dirt and debris, it may help slightly. But it is not an anti-fungal.
Salt and water mixed so it will float an egg.
