Everybody knows that dogs scratch their ears often and there is nothing wrong with that. A quick scratch here and there is normal but for those who have dogs there are some signs: when they scratch too often the fleas alert must be turned on. I noticed that when they scratch the armpits I have to check and in most cases they are there.
The problem is that this time I'm having problems with my male dog that developed a rash and it is spreading. It started in the leg where he lost some hair and now his belly is covered with rashes.
He has been linking himself a lot and I'm using all I'm discovering. I'm stressed now and I fear searching for a vet for I don't trust them and after researching reading numerous testimonies of people who took their pets to numerous vets and they prescribed lots of medicines - antibiotics, anti-histamines - and they didn't work.
I'm using gentian violet and a talcum powder with boric acid and salicylic acid after having used the flea controlling stuffs.
It is outrageous that we cannot trust physicians anymore and something simple is not healed because numerous people have to profit.
Missing the sight of a good scratch!

I'm so happy!
I did passed the antiseptic talcum powder in all the areas of the skin that had the rashes - the belly was terrible and even had blisters of pus - and the gentian violet twice a day.
It is funny that he opened his legs to help the whole process.
After a week I did bath him with an antiseptic soap and kept doing the treatment.
His belly is so beautiful again! The fur that was lost in some tiny areas are back.
There are no fleas anymore in the house I'm not sure they were the cause.
I got this treatment from a comment in a blog where a woman said that after going to numerous vets and using numerous medicines this is how she healed her dog.
It seems to me that gentian violet is not available in US over the counter.
If so, this is sad because I paid US$ 2,00 for it and the talcum powder and the soap costed US$ 5,00.
It took me US$ 7,00 to treat my dog and he didn't take any of these medicines that have a lot of side effects.
I'm so happy!
