My small maltese for the last 2 years is dealing with a weird infection that she never had on her skin. It starts with small bumps, which become infected and scab, her pink skin becomes whiteish and unclear, she was dx with allergies but they don't know to what. They tried steroid creams and had her on anitbiotics, helps a little and it comes back, i feel really bad for her.. i tried to buy all organic shampoos, food etc. but the infection isnt subsiding. What would you recommend? i really want to help her and i want this to go away. thank you.  -Agnes-

Dear Agnes,

How old is your dog now? Does she tend to be warm from the infection? What do you feed her?

You might want to look at two of our products, Derma-IonX and Defendex shampoo to help heal the skin. Derma-IonX which is an oral homeopathic product stimulates the enzyme systems in the body which reduces itching and inflammation , promotes healing of the skin and helps with assimilation of nutritional components in diet and supplements. The supplements I use along with it include digestive enzymes, probiotics, vitamin C, MSM, and fish oil. Together with Derma-IonX it produces a synergistic effect for a faster response. It can also be used topically if there are troublesome spots on the skin. I would also suggest that you give your dog only filtered water for drinking and bathing if your water contains chlorine or fluoride.

I would feed a grain free dog food with fish or turkey as the protein source. These are considered to be cooling compared to chicken or lamb which are warming.

Defendex shampoo which was designed to fight against fleas and mites also washes away debris and soothes the skin. Using both products is a simple and effective way of helping resolve a difficult condition.

Please feel free to contact us again if you have any other questions. Also, please keep us posted.

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
