This summer I have two horses with itchy tails. Underneath the top of the tail and on the buttocks under the tail are raw itchy spots. I also have a couple of friends fighting the same problem. I have been to two vets. One gave me a spray for itching and scarring, one gave me expensive steroid shots. Neither worked. They say it's caused by flies, but I have not seen this problem in the 30 years I've owned horse and the flies were not extremely bad this year. I have treated them with Miconazole cream (which seems to help more than anything), frequent baths, a combination of Listerene and Aloe gel, a diluted vinegar spray, but I still have itchy tails.
