Remedy for Dog's Itchy Skin

I have an almost 2 year old Neo Mastiff. Lately he has been scratching and nibbling at his skin around his butt, his back legs, and hips. He has scratched so much in one spot it is raw and red and the fur is very thin.

I have been giving him, antihistamines as I had thought it may be caused by the pollen in the air, but have had no luck helping him. I live on a dairy farm and have been giving him milk which he absolutely loves, but am thinking he may be allergic to this as I know other dogs are. Could someone please suggest a home remedy as I am unable to take my poor boy to the vet at the moment.

It sounds as if it might be a yeast infection of the skin or a food allergy. Change the dog food to a brand with no wheat and no by products, and don't give him those awful store treats that come in a bag, but give him lots of chicken for treats...bless his heart..here is some info on yeast infections in dogs:

I looked on line & dogs with yeast in skin ! First need to get all sugar out of diet ! No potatoes ,grains ! Duck or ,Rabbit is the best meat for them ! Salmon or chicken ,red meat or dairy products is not good for dogs that produce yeast in their skin !
So you should not use oatmeal baths !
You need to use antisipitic to their spots & body !
Witch Hazel for ears with yeast ! That is so amazing !! To use it on hot spots it is like a cleanser & a coolent ! It is cleansing his skin that he finally can relax ! Google yeast on Dogs paws ,skin & in ears ! Amazing the answers you get ! Also cold ,hot & neutral dogs ! It will help you understand your buddys body & what is the best connection of food to meet his best needs ! I can see a huge change on my boys needs are getting so much better

If you can't take the Dog to the Vet is their any reason they can't come to you? Most Veterinarians make "house calls" or did you mean their is a financial issue?

In the best interest of the Dog you could make arrangements to pay this account off. It's worth a try, good luck.

This sounds like it could be a food allergy. You will need to try different foods or home cooking recipes. If you are lucky you will find a prepared food for allergies that will work.

I did home cooking for my cairn terrier and he never had another problem. There are some great posts on this website, including mine. Good luck to you.

Hope this helps.
