is it bugs/ are the two problems related ?? help

I have a 2yr old colt. Apprx 6 wks ago, whilst grooming him, I noticed that the vein running down his hind leg was standing out. Upon closer inspection, I could see hair loss at the top part of the leg on the vein. I then checked him all over and found on the other hind leg there was a little patch of hair missing, and a further one under his belly where he has a whorl. I then deloused him and all started to subside, hair started to grow back along the vein and the other leg cleared completely. a week ago I saw that it seemed to be returning so gave him a 2nd dose. Last night, whilst checking him over I noticed that what I assume is his pee hole seemed red and a little sore. Today the vein is standing right up all down his leg again and I feel back to square 1. Couldnt check his privates

I am not clear about which vein you mean. His prepuce should not be sore and red so I suggest that you get your vet to look at that as soon as possible and at the same time raise your concerns over the vien problems.
