My mare was itchy to the point that she rubbed the hair off her head and her mane and tail down to nothing. The vet said it might be allergies and the cheapest way to go is try benadryl first and if that didnt work, then they would test for other possibilities. The benadryl did the trick! I give her normal human pink capsules (as perscribed by the vet) - I break them open and pour the powder into a bit of applesauce. The vet said to use 1 capsule for each 100 lbs, once daily. My horse is a clydesdale, so it gets pretty tedious preparing her daily benadryl, but well worth it. Good luck - sounds like your little guy is pretty miserable.
