DERMA-IONX can be helpful for a variety of skin conditions. It is an oral homeopathic product which stimulates the enzyme systems in the body that aid 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 the whole dose once a day.  I would also give  Probiotics  to aid  digestion.  OMEGA 3,6,9 is  soothing,  reduces irritation, and improves coat quality.  

  The water you give should be filtered if it contains chlorine.  Chlorine is not good for the intestinal flora.  Diet can also influence the body.   Sometimes the flavor even makes a difference.  I would choose a grain free  food  that uses fish or turkey as the protein since these are considered to be cooling for too much internal heat  according to Chinese food therapy. Beef is neutral.   Chicken, lamb, and venison are warming and so I avoid these especially in the summer.    If your pet is allergic to a protein do not use it even it has the correct thermal property.  I tend to use cooling or neutral foods during the summer and warming foods during the cold months for my healthy pets. 

   It would also be good to have someone check the anal glands and check for flea debris.  If there is a problem in these areas it can lead to the symptoms your dog has.
