Dear Sue,

DERMA-IONX is helpful for many skin conditions. It is an oral homeopathic product which stimulates the enzyme systems in the body that aids the skin and helps with assimilation of nutritional components in diet and supplements. What sets it apart from most homeopathics is that it is in an oligotherapeutic mineral base which has had a charge added to it.

Initially I would give a half dose of DERMA-IONX on the breakfast and supper food. After there are signs of improvement you can give a whole dose once a day. I would also give Probiotics to aid the immune system. OMEGA 3,6,9 is also helpful in soothing irritated skin and improves coat quality.

Diet can also influence itchiness. What do you feed your dog?

If you are able to bathe your dog you might want to try DEFENDEX shampoo. It is soothing due to the essential oils and homeopathics in it.

Please keep us updated so we can help guide you along the way.

Best regards,

Dr. Char
