Fifty two cattle were clinically examined and found affected with multi-focal alopecia, pyoderma, and polypnea in some cases. Laboratory examination confirmed Staphylococcus sp, fungus, yeast and ectoparasites. Antibiotic sensitivity test showed, the organisms were resistant to most of the antibiotics. The organisms were found to be sensitive to mixture of aqueous seed extract of Sesamum indicum and Citrus limon fruit juice in agar well diffusion test. Six cattle kept as control. 10 cattle (group A) were administered Ivermectin at 0.2 mg/kg body weight subcutaneously once and Povidone Iodine ointment applied externally for 7 days. 36 cattle (group B) orally administered the mixture of palm jaggery, common salt, Sesamum indicum, buffalo ghee and Citrus limon for 7 days. No recovery noticed in control. Group A and B showed 30% and 89% recovery respectively.
