Hi guys. My pittie is having an attack of flakey, itchy skin. He had the same problem last year (same time), and we thought it was allergies (he was on all sorts of meds, etc...but nothing worked--we went to two vets about this). We changed his food to low allergen food. Changed our cleaning products to hypoallergenic. We even started using distilled water in his bowl. But it never did anything to help him. He got better when spring came. It occurred to us this year that it could just be the dry air and heated interiors. I have read about a myriad of ideas online, but what do the pit bull owners on the board recommend for dry, itchy skin? He'll scatch so hard he bleeds and scabs. I have something called Micro Tek that seems to calm the itching, but only temporarily. He's allergic to Tea Tree Oil we found out. Would Olive Oil or eggs in his food help (I've heard this "remedy" for years, but have no idea if it works)? Is there a lotion or spray that can keep his skin hydrated in the low humidity? I see dozens and dozens of products that claim to help--but does anything really work? We already give him collodial oatmeal baths, and that only helps for a little while. After a few hours of being dried off, he's scratching again. Help. It makes us miserable to see him so miserable!
