My dog has itchy, scaly, flaking skin running from the middle of her back all the way down her tail. I thought it was a bad case of fleas, but although it may have started that way, we have the flea problem under control. Her hair has started falling out now, too. I have sprayed her with the hot spot stuff to soothe her, but she is still biting and licking her self constantly. I have bathed her with Adams Shampoo, oatmeal shampoo, Dandruff shampoo, and sprayed her with Sulfodene Hot Spot & Itch Relief Medicated Spray for dogs. I thought maybe a cream that could be rubbed gently into her skin might help. We have given her a half of a benedryl pill thinking it would help the itching. It did for a night, but it made her so lethargic it was pitiful. She is so miserable.
