Muck-itch is one of the most common skin disorders found in horses throughout the country. It occurs when a bacterium called Dermatophilus congolensis is present. It is caused from prolonged rainfall resulting in a damp environment, muddy conditions, morning dew along with increased humidity and high temperatures.
Under normal conditions, a horse's external layer of skin provides a protective barrier from bacteria invasion. But when a horse's skin remains wet for long periods of time, the skins normal defense mechanisms weakens and Muck-itch occurs. Horses are very sore and sensitive in these areas. This can also be known as Rain Scald, Dew Poisoning, Mud Fever, Scratches, Mud Rash, Cracked Heels or Rain Rot.
