Hi Dr Wilson,

I just want to know if the Derma-IonX is affective on Mange.

I'm 99% sure my dog which is a Labrador cross has a very bad case of eczema which is just on the lower back and backside where he continually itches and nothing seems to help much but thought just in case it might be Mange, would this product help that as well. He’s 12 years old.

Thank you

Warm regards,

Dear Margaret,

 If you suspect mange I would suggest you bathe your dog in DefendeX.  It doesn't contain toxic chemicals and so it would be OK to use if there weren't mites, but would be helpful if there were; it will also help cool the skin which should provide some relief.  In addition give Derma-IonX internally by adding to his food.  If necessary it can also be sprayed onto any bad areas of his skin. The homeopathic ingredients in Derma-IonX help to reduce itchiness and stimulate healing.   In addition you might want to avoid a grain based dog food or gradually switch to a different type of hypoallergenic dog food in case allergies are affecting his immune system.  I also think it is a good idea to give digestive enzymes with each meal and a probiotics and a fish oil supplement daily.  Derma-IonX will help the body to better utilize the other supplements for a synergistic effect.  Please keep us informed of your progress or if you have any other questions.<br /><br />

Best wishes,
Dr. Char
