I also have skin allergy problems with my Jake. We have tried everything...and I do mean EVERYTHING!! It drives me crazy. I've tried various antihistamines (and they work...for a while), food elimination diets, no itch spray, sulfa derm tab, fish oil....and on and on. This past weekend I bathed him with BioGroom oatmeal shampoo and either I'm crazy (always a possibility ) or the scratching has decreased. I'm optimistically hopeful that this shampoo is going to be what helps. And I've tried numerous soothing no-itch shampoos. One thing is to be sure when you bathe you get all of the shampoo off. If you think you've rinsed enough....rinse one more time.
