So my rooster has recently developed a really dry and crusty looking comb and from a bit of research i’ve come to the conclusion it may be favus? I have some eucalyptus infused petroleum jelly and i was wondering if that could help? or are there other products i could use to help him recover quickly? thanks in advance

Do you have pictures of the comb? Could it be dry skin? Miconozole or clotrimazole are creams that can help treat a fungal infection, if it is favus.

ACV kills fungus in general (no idea about this one specifically) & then coconut oil (or vaseline) on top to keep it moist
