Yeast Infection on a Dog's Paws Or Ears

You can treat itchy paws, by rubbing "over-the-counter" women's vaginal yeast/itch cream into every crevasse of your dog's paws. Make sure they are dried a bit using your blow dryer. Put booties on if it is wet outside to avoid further dampness (which encourages the growth of the itchy fungus) and put a pee pad on your patio where it is dry so dog learns to go in dry places.


You should select a dry area (or create one) so your dog can go without getting paws damp. Use a bag of bark from Home Depot or garden center and teach dog to go there instead. Create an overhang so it doesn't get wet.

You can also treat yeasty dog ears by inserting a Women's vaginal suppository into each ear. You may have have to split it longways into two or whittle it down a bit (save the rest). Repeat in 3 days. Use the 7 or 3 day treatment options. Leave the suppository in there, it will melt and disappear on its own. (Clean and dry the ear as much as possible first, but it works either way.) Give dog a nice hug and treat afterward and rub ears a bit to melt the suppository.

My dog has a cheesy smelling chin wich I realized is some sort of bacterial or yeast problem,I'm getting some human thrush cream to rub on it and hopefully that'll clear the problem up,if not then it's a dreaded trip to the vet(he hates it)great advice on here but regarding putting something in a dogs ears sounds dangerous, pahaps melting them and rubbing into the dogs ears safer.

Since they're recommending using women's vaginal yeast medications for use on dogs, why not use active culture yogurt instead? If applied directly to the vaginal area, it will knock out the yeast infection within 2-3 days. It seems like it would do the same for treating a dog's skin condition.
