    Could it be photosensitization? Any redness or skin peeling anywhere else, like the teats or nose?

    Mortelaro by the looks of, needs to be sprayed with a suitable foot-spray to kill it off, will progressively get worse and cow will go lame eventually is it up in between the claws that's a sure sign of it
