    The issue does seem to be some sort of a contact dermatitis. I am no vet by any means. Was the yard sprayed with any chemicals recently? I remember I had put down some organic fertilizer on our yard and Jewel came down with this issue.
    What should I do?? What did you do?

    I'm late to this, but I was going to suggest the fertilizers or anything that you spray outside...

    What about house cleaners… floors, carpets, do you use Febreeze?!! My Bella had a horrible reaction to Febreeze onetime. We have a LOT of allergies in my home, and I wash EVERYTHING w/All free & clear (it was recommended by my daughter's dermatologist).

    Yep...just on front paws. We had tried everything and nothing was working...finally some relief for her. For paws I guess she needs to be on the medicine for 2-3 months...apparently it's much more stubborn.

    Dexter had Demodex when he was little. Still has skin issues, poor kid. He gets Benadryl, yogurt, and special baths for it.

    He's also got a grain allergy I suspect. All of the "soothing" shampoos are not soothing for anybody if the groomer messes up and gives him the wrong shampoo.

    Yogurt will help if it's yeast. And the Epsom salt bath...

    Now yesterday morning her paws were very pink. When I came home from work they were almost normal. Then this morning pink again!!
    I just don't get it!! I changed all the bedding and her pillow last night. I recleaned the floors with the stuff I have always used. I even used a new mop.
    I dusted & vaccumed every nook I could find. I wipe her paws down when she comes back in from potty breaks.
    I even took all the rubber chew toys away!! I just don't know what to do anymore!!! Why can't I figure this out?????

    We wiped her paws down, did the Benadryl thing for a couple of days and tried to rule out everything under the sun like you have been doing. We kept her out of the back yard for a couple of weeks and rainfalls. She cleared up and saved a trip to the vets.

    If it is our Detergents would that only effect her paws? She lays on everything that is washed in our detergent. All the pillows and bedding.
    I am having the same problem with my OEB Coach's feet. His are irritated in between & he has a huge red lump on the top of one. His hair has come off of it so it is just really red & inflamed. The meds the vet gave us do not seem to help either. I give him baths in Epson Salt but he HATES baths so getting him to stand in the tub makes him so irritable. I also bought some wipes from the pet store that help with itching, I rub him down with those at night too.
