Dermititis In Dog-Severe Itching/Scratching

We have a rescue golden with a history of skin disorder. Currently, she has bad dermititis. Itches all the time with paws and mouth. Skin is red and scabs when she itches too much.

She had been on antibiotic and predisone for this condition before. Trying to avoid same this time, but am not finding any relief with Sulfur or Pulsatilla.

HELP my poor 7 year old girl.

I dont know for sure how often she had been given antibiotic and steriod, other than that she was give it once about 3 weeks before I got her. I would assume that this has been a chronic condition and she probably was on it a few times, her skin condition was horrible when the rescue got her I was told.

She is on verus senior diet -
Brown rice, lamb meal, and oats

• A lamb-based diet for older or less active dogs

• The chicken fat in our lamb formula is purified to remove its protein constituent.

ok---1 dose "only" arsenicum alba 30c

now steroids use and antibiotic use may have created block but we will address the obvious first--then procee from there...

give fresh meat to dog---digestive system may have become somewhat sterile from allopathic treatment and only makes matter worse---in this case buried bones/meat was the choice remedy ---but use of priobiotic supplement along with old bones and fresh meat...but definitely NO food with any soy product should be given to dogs...

start diet suggestions NOW--

30 c arsenicumm did nothing, may have even made it worse. The itching is intense as is the redness. Any other suggestions? I have 200c and 1M remedies as well.

maltesemd last decade
if definite aggravtion after ars --and no new symptoms,,then potency (30c) too low----but if any new symptoms ,then indicative of change in remedies---

this you need access and relate to me--this information--we need get this aggravtion or "flair-up" under control...
John Stanton last decade
is there any NEW symptoms AT ALL?

There is a pet food supplement that I am familiar with that should help. Email me privately if you are interested. Just click on my profile, click on the website, and then in the top right hand corner you'll find a gmail adrress. I'll then send you an attachment about the product. I can't talk about it on this forum.

Itchy dog

My dog has developed a lot of itching after being bathed with a particular shampoo.
Can anyone suggest any remedy?
I had given her one dose of sulphur some weeks back and that one dose seemed to have helped- I’m a little scared of repeating without some advice.

Please give your dog occisional dose of sulpher and Hydrocotyle-Q massive dose ( 50 drops per dose 4 times a day in water of milk) for a week and report.

I have the same prob with my Goldie. These dogs are prone to skin allergies and sensetivity. I gave her purex irritans in a 200c Once a week (3 weeks now) no more, which has camlmed things down considerably. I also gave Sulpher, Puls, Ars alb, who's effects were retrograde.
Hydrocotyle Q could be of help BUT I wouldn't give so much of it in a tincture. I would rather use a 6x Hpathicly and then only once a day for 5 days and watch for the effects after the first dose. Also put a cap full of white vinegar in the drinking water, fleas don't like acid skin.

Dear dr. mahfooz,
Thank you for the prompt and helpful reply.
I gave her another dose of sulphur after reading your message- Hydrocotyle-Q I will have to procure first.

She does not have milk and this is the first time she is having this itching.

As I said it is due to the shampoo- when I scratch her a silver white powder appears on my finger tips and some tiny black particles are dislodged.

Dear parachute,
My dog has no fleas- she hardly interacts with other dogs.

But I do think I will try diluted white vinegar- I was toying with a few drops of calendula tincture in a bucket of water...
Best regards,

Hi parachute,
I didn't note that you'd said to put the vinegar in the drinking water! Will she go for that?!
Anyways I bathed her with a bit of vinegar added to the water and the skin has definitely improved. In fact her fur has become so silky and she's so proud of herself as it is!

Next, I must eat my words! I did note one small red flea near her eye right after I posted my earlier replies- so sorry- you've been very right all along.
