    Default Mud Fever question?

    Hi
    My boy has got mud fever for the 1st time and I have been told to wash dry and sudecream every night . my question is for parents I used sudecream for nappy rash but found that metaium ( yellow paste in a yellow box was far better than sudecream) has anyone used this on mud fever? or am I looking at this the wrong way?

    If you have a look in Vet & Hoof Care section there is a very recent thread on mud fever. I don't know how to link to it but it's at the bottom of the first page. Hope it helps.

    I'm sure both would be fine but Metanium is 2.50 for 30g and Sudocrem is 5 for a 400g tub which makes is a lot less expensive when use use it by the handful

    If I remember correctly Sudocrem is zinc and castor oil cream as are some of the Equestrian products sold for mud fever.
    I use udder cream (Battles) for mild mud fever it is also zinc and castor oil cream. it’s often cheaper and works well.
    I have not seen the yellow stuff you describe OP what’s in it?

    You would need to check with your vet as the ingredients are totally different
