At 10 years old, my chi started to get raw, itchy skin. It took years to find help. She went to the vet and got allergy shits to no avail. Nizoral is an anti dandruff shampoo. The ingredient ketoconazole in it is what helps. Target is less expensive than other stores. About $15. A probiotic also has greatlly helped. Been giving her one made by zesty paws. Within 2 weeks of a daily bath and one probiotic, her hair has totally grown back and she is happy and comfotable again. She won’t eat the probiotic chew alone, so I crumble it in a small amount of plain or vanilla yogurt and feed it to her. Good luck! It took me 4 years of trying different things.

Some dogs with itchy skin can have a yeast problem, if so don’t use an oatmeal shampoo. I would try an aloe or tea tree. Earthbath is my favorite brand.

Are they inside dogs or outside dogs. I had my chihuahua for 16 years and she was an inside dog and the vet told me to honestly bath her once a season if that because she needed the natural oils of her own skin she was shorthaired But she never smelled bad or anything like that don’t worry lol but to much bathing causes dry skin and itchy and sensitive skin also.
