Red dots under dog's armpit area with black scaly looking skin without hair (Part 7)
by Loi Wei Ling
Dear Dr Tillman,
Xuan Xuan's condition has been quite stable for the past 2 months. She has recovered from her limping.
On the scale of 10, her itch level is about 3 but occasionally higher straight after bathing. She is still using the same oatmeal shampoo.
She has been scratching her underside less but biting the backside, scratching her elbows with her hind legs, scratching the back of her ears and rubbing her eyes. As you can see from the pictures, these are the problem areas due to her scratching. Other than that, the rest of her body are quite ok.
Her skin on her left elbow is quite bad. It is thick and hard and the crack lines are deep.
I was thinking what more can be done? She has gone this far and I can definitely live with her itch level now for the rest of her life but I do hope more can be done as she is far from being well. We seems to have tried quite a few homeopathic medicine. But it seems that they are not perfect match.
To date, she has taken 3 bottles of milk thistle, 2.5 bottles of immuplex and antronex. Her rescue remedy is finishing and I am thinking of ordering them from US soon. Should I order all 3 supplements too? The initial reason for taking the supplements is to repair her liver. Do I still need to continue the supplements then?
