Health Questions & Answers



Hi My lab just developed what my vet is sure is a staph infection we believe it is from the grass. He has red blotches on his belly only. No where else. He doesn't even seem to know he has it, no licking or scratching. He has very little fur on his belley so his skin is always in contact with the grass. Will Derma-Ionx help? I do not want to keep giving him antibiotics. He eats home cooked meals and all treats are carefully chosen. He is 8 years old and there were no previous skin problems until 3 months ago. More weeds have grown in our backyard after a bit of drought here in Florida and this is when the problem began. I used several of the ingredients in this product already but it seems like a good idea to combine all that you have in Derma-IonX. I am just not sure whether to try it. Thank you in advance.

Dear Dee,

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.

Diet can also influence the skin. What do you feed your dog? What kind of water do you give?

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

Best regards,

Dr. Char
