You might want to look at some of our products 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 Canine probiotics, vitamin C, MSM, and Omega 3,6,9. Together with DERMA-IONX it produces a synergistic effect for a faster response. I would also suggest that you give your dog only filtered water for drinking and bathing if your water contains chlorine or fluoride. For the dietary modifications you might want to try a grain free diet for a while.
DEFENDEX shampoo which is nontoxic washes away debris and soothes the skin. The skin dampness could have started with an underlying allergy process which has allowed bacteria or yeast to grow on the skin. You might need to see your veterinarian for antibiotics and to have the area shaved so that it can dry out. If there is an allergy limiting exposure to the allergen would be helpful. A common one is flea saliva. It only takes one flea bite to get the process started. Please feel free to contact us again if you have any other questions.
