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 skin and improves coat quality.
The problem area could be due to fleas or allergies causing the allergy glands to over fill. You should use a flea comb to check for fleas or flea debris. You could ask a groomer to express the anal glands for you. If you bathe your dog at home DEFENDEX shampoo contains essential oils and can be very helpful to the skin.
Diet can also influence the skin. What do you feed your dog?
