    Default Itch attack

    Roxy has recently( within the last 7 days) become very itchy. We just returned from visiting my parents and I can only assume something has irritated her. She uses hypoallergenic shampoo along with medicated shampoo and already takes benadryl twice daily for allergies. She is rubbing and scratching herself raw. I have put hydrocortisone on her which seems to help some but this itch attack is still happening. Is there anything anyone suggests to rub on her skin or meds to help relieve her?

    You can try coconut oil as it is anti-fungal/bacterial. It may or may not help. You can also use gold bond powder/spray. Just not the ones with the menthol in them.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    agreed.... poor girl, @julie1990 I hope it settled down and was just something from your parents place.
