Skin rashes on dogs

Common Questions and Answers about Skin rashes on dogs


Avatar m tn We have three chow mix dogs who all have a terrible rash. It started on one and spread to the other two. The dog who first contracted the rash has a terrible odor that comes right back after being washed. Our vet took a skin scraping and says he's not sure what it could be. He prescribed antibiotics but they didn't work. We have tried all kinds of over the counter medications that also didn't work.
Avatar n tn A couple of weeks ago, she broke out into angry red rashes on her abdomen and the inside of her legs. Now she is also biting her paws. We suspect a yeast infection and have sent samples for a culture. Her platelet count is also low. She is also scratching her ears. Her appetite is unimpaired though. Any ideas?

Avatar f tn Our girl Abby, 55 lb German-Australian Sheppard mix has been to the vet three times in the past year for one ear infection and two separate incidents of skin rashes. The vet diagnosed allergies, all treated and cleared. The last visit a couple of months ago vet said we can start with otc cortisone if rashes return and see if it helps, but if more frequent episodes then consider going back for prescription strength meds.
Avatar f tn My dog has a couple of rashes on his belly only that get scaly. The veternarian diagnosed it as canine acne and prescribed an antibiotic. The rash resolved but then came back. When it returned, I tried using neosporin on it and it went away. Now his skin between his toe pads is dark red and looks raw. We took him back to the vet and he said it was an allergy and prescribed a steroid. Once the steroid is finished, we could try to treat with benadryl. I hate to give my dog a steroid.
683609 tn?1226764977 I recommend starting by taking your dog to your veterinarian for assessment of the itch and medication recommendations. The most common reasons for itchy skin in dogs include skin infections, microscopic skin parasites such as scabies or demodex mites, food allergy, or pollen/dust allergies. The red spots and hairloss/swelling of the foot the you describe are suspicous for a bacterial skin infection.
455950 tn?1208891610 Since dogs don't get rashes, it sounds like a bacterial infection of some kind. I would see a vet asap and get him on some antibiotics because waiting will only make it harder to clear and cost more in meds for you. I would make sure they culture it too. Could be allergy related but hard to tell if you don't get a skin scrape, cytology and culture done but most important is to get the poor thing some relief with maybe a short course of steroids and a longer round of antibiotics.

394994 tn?1274471456 Fish Oil supplements thrown in with food can work wonders in helping skin and coat- I give my dogs 3-5 capsules a day, (get the cheapest kind at Costco - just as good/better as high dollar "pet" brands). My vet told me 90% (or more) of allergic-type symptoms come from diet. Read the labels on your dog food- corn, wheat, rice, (grains) can cause problems. A "limited ingredient" dog food, especially one that is grain-free would probably make a big difference.

Avatar m tn that time i used condom also after some days of that i m seeing the rashes and dryness on my penis top area inside the foreskin.i m very much worried about it a disease or a normal allergy problem ??
Avatar m tn m hoping someone out there who has experience with this problem or have any ideas what is going on. I have this skin problem for 7 days and it appears only at this area which is the left side of my abdomen. This happened to me on the same day when I have GERD.

Avatar f tn I was on the hospital yesterday.
Avatar m tn I have been getting skin rashes from my early childhood. These Rashes tend to come mostly during the Summer months of the year. They usually seem like a mosquito bite. They first occurs behind the ear, then around the neck, head scalp and spread to the back. Finally i get them even in my face. They are very itchy . They usually seem to have a cycle like 24 hours. They start by afternoon and get intense by evening and disappear while i sleep. The body gets heated up so much during that time.
Avatar m tn hi..... I have odd type skin rashes or swelling..... I live in cold county(canada). I get rashes only in the hands(from fingers to wrist only) that too only if go out only. Inside the house,I'm pretty normal. but once I go out(where the temperature will be in minus) I get rashes only in hands which is not covered, rest of my body will be covered with jackets and winter shoes. so which made me to think. whether this rash is because of the climatic change (this sounds really weird).
Avatar m tn It is characterized by intense itching, usually at night and by small insect-type bites lesions on the skin. Diagnosis of scabies is made by scraping the skin and viewing the material under a microscope to see the characteristic mite or eggs. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps.
Avatar n tn Since last month I have felt that the skin on the penis has gone very sensitive. The fore skin of the penis is circumsized and I feel rashes and small cuts around the penis just below the head. These rashes and cuts are more pronounced specially after the intercourse, as I start feeling pain and burning during the erosl time. Some time even I see small amount of blood from the rashes (which is created within that 3-4 mins time of intercourse).
