    My horse had that last eyar and the vet gave me some ointement..forget what its called, I think it starts with an A but it has Nystatin in it which I know is a good fungus killer. I'll look at the tube when I go to the barn tommorow.

    i know my vet makes this stuff we call Green Slime, i think the real name is Dermarex, it is a sulfur based "slime" and it works.

    Ok, I went to the barn today and looked at the stuff. Its called Animax ointment, and it worked great on my horses ears when he had the white fungus in them.

    Are you sure that it is really a fungus? Are they white spots varying in size? These are called Aural Plaques. They do not pose a threat to equine health, and therefore do not have to be treated with anything. I have never heard of aural plaques as being treatable before, so I am not sure how these creams and ointments work.....out of curiosity, what is the active ingredient in these ointments for those who have them?

    Not positive it's a fungus, the spots do vary in size. The research I have done so far has lead me to a fungus or the Aural Plaques as you had stated. A friend had said to try a little mineral oil. It's not bad, just a few small spots. She's an all black quarter horse and they stand out. Just curious on how to get rid of them. Thanks!!!
