    I hate to say this but dry itchy skin needs to be treated from the inside
    out. Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids need to be added to the dogs food every day
    if feeding the dog a grocery type food. Another way is to gradually
    transition the dog over to a no grain food. Grain is a great contributor to
    skin allergies as well. Putting too many types of sprays or shampoos on the
    dogs coat could cause more irrigation. Fish oil works great as a supplement
    or buying a dog food that has no grain.

    I put eggs in my dogs food, and mix it very well, and his fur comes out
    very shiny, and not itchy. He is about eight lbs so, when his skin gets dry
    it spreads. So lately I have been using Eggs, and Oatmeal Shampoo. He is a
    French Bulldog Mix with Chihuahua. So it was definite that he was going to
    have itchy skin.

    If you comb out your dog with a wire brush before you bathe him he will
    have a bad reaction to the warm water because his skin will have
    microscopic tears in it. When it dries with a hair dryer the tears swell
    and “that” is what causes the itching. The remedy is “do Not” comb your
    dogs hair before a bath, only use cool water to very gently wash him (dont
    use your fingernails) and let him air dry. A viniger rince 25% & 75% water
    will also sooth the skin and get rid of flees to boot.

    reading the lable i gave him 1.5 antibiotic and just rinced his feet ,
    chest , and tail left it for 10mins then riced it off again and left him on
    a clean towell thats the method i got from reading the booklets.. i would
    prefer to do it in the bath but if i have to leave the shampoo on for 10
    mins surly i have to sponge bath him.

    The most helpful thing for dogs skin is to give them fish oil.They need the
    essential fatty acids in it and it often cures itchy skin syndrome
