I doubt that this is a mite problem. Is there any chance of a tail bandage a bit tight or left on for a while. Whatever the cause clean up with a dilute solution of hibiscrub or pevidine rinse and dry well. Repeat 2 x daily. If no improvement 48 hours get a vet to see her.
hi there i had a grey pony which suffered with sweetich i treated the itching with diluted benzyl benzoate which i sprayed on the main and tail twice a day this helps to stop the rubbing i gave him d itch in his feed this worked brill ...you will find it hard to get hold of benzyl benzoate any more but if you go to boots the chemist and ask for ascabiol emulsion which is the same hopr this helps
