Common Questions and Answers about Dry skin in dogs remedies


Avatar n tn I have the same problem! Dry, cracked skin that I have to peel off of my upper eyelids. It comes in waves. It might be bad for a week and go away for a month, or vice versa. It seems to be worse when the weather is hot or dry, but sometimes that makes no difference. And sometimes it cracks so badly it bleeds, like chapped lips. I went to my doctor and he said that I had a "skin condition." I'd never wanted to beat someone so badly.
2186126 tn?1384961026 Prior to taking the meds, she was always happy and interested in a walk - granted always hungry, but vivacious, full of life. After taking trilostane, it's as if she shut done. I feel that in some dogs, the medicine stops their cortisol production and then somehow it triggers something else that causes them to shut down. I've read now that internal medicine veterinary specialists believe in not treating Cushing's and letting it run its course.
Avatar n tn Since the pillow experiment, my eyes aren't swollen, red or covered in scaly, dry skin anymore. They do still itch though. I don't drink more than one night a wk and noticed this on other nights, I've never used any MAC product, I've had no allergies to date, non-smoker. I do have an indoor cat and we've had her for years. I originally noticed the problem after starting a treatment of Differin and Benzyclin. I used to think that the medicine got on my under eye skin and irritated it.
Avatar f tn 2)nystatin/triamcinolone cream TID basically to cover all the baces, she gave me rx antibiotic cream to treat what might be growing in my skin, and the prednisone, in case it is an allergic thing. telling me she dnk what it is.
1254673 tn?1270651444 He in general has very nice fur except for his feet legs which he has licked to bard skin, and he has some black/dark skin in ears and behind them and on bellly. All are improving again, and without an steroids which I agree are "bad news" as far as a cure is concerned. I think rice and potato as well as many other vegetables are fine, but grains are not nor are any dairy/egg ...
Avatar n tn i was advised to take vit b12 complex, as this helps with these problems, the itching isnt as bad, mainly souls of my feet rather than my whole body as it used to be, i slather my feet in very dry skin cream every night, i manage to slp for 3 hrs, then they itch again, if in am anxious at all, it hits with a vengeance, then you get irritable, and more anxious, if this happens dont stay in bed, get up for a while, cos you will only get worse.
4413820 tn?1354213655 Both pugs were on prednisone (5 mg once daily) for skin allergies. One pug has had pneumonia 3 times in one year and is def no long taking the prednisone anymore, because is more than likely the cause. The other pug takes 2.5mg about 3 times a week now and his HORRIBLE skin condition is SOOO much better and he has never been sick a day in his life. So it's hit or miss sometimes with complications of prednisone. Just know that it can increase their chances of developing infections.
Avatar f tn Buddy was bald in large areas, stinky, greasy skin and coat yet had massive , thick amounts of dry skin flakes at the same time. He had chewed and itched himself raw in some places. He was soooo miserable. I knew the minute I saw him that if it wasn't liver or thyroid issues causing the skin problem, that it was just a poor diet. He had been seized from a neglect/abuse situation. I'm happy to say that Buddy is in glorious full coat now.
Avatar n tn I just lost one of my other dogs a week ago, seeing her go though this is just killing me. IS SHE IN PAIN? When she goes through these spells does that mean she cant breath? cause I can hear it in her chest. like a weez. PLEASE help. I'm just at a loss of what to do anymore. But, when she isn't going through these spells she is as happy as can be. Running around like a puppy.
Avatar m tn I know this won't apply to many out there but for some of you who live in dry places, use topical or oral medicine that dry out or irritate the skin, have a history of dry skin, etc. You might try using a good moisturizer. Different people respond to different types of moisturizer so don't assume there is a "best".
Avatar n tn i ordered dry oxy by opaline solutions. the creepy crawlies, stinging and skin irritations ceased in less than 8 hours and i slept like a baby that night. its stabilized oxygen in a capsule. in the beginning i saw a couple of so called bites, on me i went to emergency. the doctor said they were flea bites.i'm like ok. no dog or friends and family with pets.in my home. she gave me an ointment and made a follow up appointment for two weeks later. then i was told no flea bites.
Avatar f tn I'm not sure if it's just because my skin is really dry or the change from one extreme climate to the next- I was in Maui for a week where it was obviously very warm and then I got home to the midwest where it was freezing. Right when I got home from the trip is when this problem started to happen. I do have a doctor's appointment in a week but it's been so frustrating I was just wondering if anyone had any suggestions- Thanks!!
Avatar f tn i believe I have cutaneous fungi in my skin. Everyone in my family thinks I am seeing things because these items are everywhere. In my carper, burrowed into food and harder substances. I just don't understand why I see these items (that sometimes look similar to very small worms jellyfish or geometric shapes such as circles, triangles and lines) and others don't. I wonder if I am hallucinating but, I have taken photos of the sores and red lines, circles etc.
Avatar f tn I suppose that you have been infected with human scabies mites or something similar. I suffered from them for months until a friend told me about her mother's cure for this pestilence. This is what she told me. I used it. It worked. "Assume they are on you mostly, but some can be found in your clothes, your furniture, and your carpets." " First , encase your mattresses, box springs, pillows in mite proof covers.
Avatar m tn A crawling sensation in skin is seen in people who are very anxious and stressed out. Very dry skin (you rule this out) and disorders of thyroid gland all can precipitate a crawling sensation. The other possibility is Morgellons disease often mimics scabies. The disease is believed to be caused by weak immune systems in people that have contracted the tick-borne Lyme Disease at some point in their life. It can also be a fungal infection like Tinea corporis.
Avatar n tn Hi, Differentials in your case will be atopic dermatitis, an allergic dermatitis , contact dermatitis and an allergic reaction to some unknown trigger. Dermatitis or eczema usually presents with a reddish rash which may be weeping or excoriated due to frequent scratching.Border of the rash is not well demarcated and there are tiny vesicles or lesions containing fluid in the involved area.
Avatar n tn *I thought it might be my laundry detergent on my pillows, bc it always starts in the morning, like I'll just wake up with red, puffy, dry skin all around my eyes.
Avatar n tn I thought that my skin was just extremely dry after the water turned cold in the shower so I began to put on baby oil gel right before I got out of the shower to lock in the moisture, it only worked for a while and then I began to itch really bad all over again. I tried different lotions, I only use dove unscented soap, no arftifical fragerances or anything, and I still itch?
Avatar m tn it took me months to figure it out, because when you get bitten all you will see is a black speck or a tiny white dot(which just looks like severly dry skin...in your hair will just look like dandruff) after examination IS NOT DRY SKIN/DANDRUFF@ALL!!! It flys when it gets older but, smaller one's crawl all over! It will move and kindof flop up when touched(if you can grab it BEFORE it gets into a pore or hair follicle)...
Avatar m tn Then you use saline spray as maintenance if you nose gets dry. Use 1/2 teaspoon plain salt in 8 oz. water to make saline solution yourself. You should have enough to use. Post your feed back so we can see how it works.
Avatar n tn Are you affected worse during weather changes or rainy or humid weather? Or in summer or winter or all the time? I ask because I live in a mild sub tropical climate and mine used to be worst at the start and during winter which is dry, but the last couple of years I'm affected really badly when it rains and in the humid stormy summers.
Avatar f tn I take phenergan myself for constant nausea, and discovered late in the game that dogs can also take phenergan. It didn't work quite as well as the reglan, but at that point we tried anything we could get our hands on. Over the counter Dramamine for motion sickness can be tried as it is metabolized in the liver - got that info from an ER vet nearby.
Avatar n tn Its in a white bottle with a gold top, its like for extremely dry skin. That has worked well in helping with the redness and itching. I have also used something called TriplePaste, which is like a diaper rash cream, that ultimately did NOT work for me, but helped a friend of mine who has eczema on her hands. I have also used something called emollient night cream from Mary Kay.
Avatar n tn I have been taking some natural detox for the blood in pills form, I was feeling ok but last nite and this morning my hands started up again but not terrible that i want to rip them off, it's more of a burning irritating itch that is under the skin, no rash no dry skin and it tends to be activated when I do things like opening a soda bottle top or holding the retractable lead for the dogs...

585414 tn?1288944902 ), doing passive aggressive or hostile pranks (in the past), self medicating with natural remedies (in the past), drinking large amounts of caffeinated beverages (in the past), overstating my important/thinking I could "change the world", unable to concentrate on tasks but becoming obssessed with something unimportant. Right now I am to the point where I can spot this and catch it before it gets worse. Can you? What happens with you? Can you stop it? And could you learn?
Avatar n tn I don't have allergies of any kind and I'm in excellent health and I can learn to live with the smell of fresh baked bread in my nostrils.. I mean it could be owrse.. still I think I should get someone to check this out especially as I read about Phantom smells being a possible side efect of brain tumors...
Avatar n tn About 48 hours ago, I noticed this heat sensation in my left shin. At first I thought I was standing too close to a heat vent in the floor at work! It is a warm, sort of tingly sensation that lasts 5 seconds and occurs, I don't know, 10 times throughout the day. I wonder if I slept on the leg funny?? Stress?? I am 43 and in reasonably good health but seem to be a hypochondriac (spelling?) at times.
184674 tn?1360864093 It got better, cleared up for awhile, then came back with a vengence, only the stupid vet clinic I took him to had a moron treating him for skin allergies instead of mange and never even did a skin scraping. So not only did the demodex come back with a vengence, but I spent an arm and a leg treating him for allergies that he never had, and nearly all his hair fell out and he mutilated literally half the skin on his body from chewing and scratching.
Avatar n tn I've been experiencing a similar persistent exhaust smell on and off for years. It seems to come on in the winter (I live in New York where the dry heat and cold air really affects my sinuses) and lasts until the weather warms up and the air is more humid. I had never had any problems until after my first terrible sinus infection 7 years ago (shortly after I moved to the East Coast from CA).
