Anyone have any advice on how to heal scratches quickly and effectively that have started to develop on hind legs?

A fungal infection can usually be cleared up with myconazol.

My advice is to locate an endurance riders forum! I got advice on clearing it up from that group of riders and it worked perfectly! Unfortunately, I can't remember the forumula as I had to mix like 4 things together but it worked like a charm! So, try a hard core endurance riding site and you will get some great ideas! Good luck!

I have used combination Furazon, original formula Desitin, and small amt DMSO. (Only if no open wounds, do not pick scabs off)

Chlorhexidine. Apply it at least twice a day. I used to use cotton balls so I could make sure I got it between the scabs on my late gelding. Soak the cotton balls thoroughly. It was the ONLY thing that ever worked on his white hind ankle. Only thing. Cleared it up in no time at all.
