Default Revisiting armpit rash

With the recent snow, I can't keep ahead or red armpits with gold bond powder. Just when I get them dried and powdered, they run back through the door door to make trails in the snow and get soggy again.

Anything that works better than gold bond, or should I phone the vet?

Thanks, we've had so little snow for years, this is new to me again

Might be a good idea to bathe her armpits with an anti fungal/bacterial shampoo a couple times a week to start. And be sure they're dried completely but not rubbing down with a towel as that can irritate it more. I use a blow dryer on very low heat. (Margs is so used to all this she rolls over on her back)
I hope she/they get better - we're having an awful time with rain - standing water and so much mud tx

I'm just guessing but how about the creams instead of the powder.

I use Caldesene powder on Bentley. A friend that raises Bloodhounds (bad droolers)introduced me to it and it is like magic. You can find it at most stores on the baby aisle. It smells good too. I know that you are probably tired of the snow but I'd love to have some. It NEVER snows here!

Oh what I'd give for some decent snow instead of all this rain, rain and more rain and MUD. It didn't stop yesterday and the backgarden - well thankfully I didn't cut it too sort last Fall. At last snow is clean.

We had some pretty open winters out in the Toronto area during the years we were out there, although there were some fun Winters! Digging the snow back from the fencing so the hounds didn't just walk out over the solid snow drifts.

I digress. Yes, I'd suggest you maybe use an anti-fungal shampoo (my vet suggested putting it on neet, much as you'll have to check it's not too harsh) on the bad areas. You may find an anti inflammatory shot might calm things down too. Creams may not be what's needed - I have similar problems, and always do better with a drying talc than any creams. Obviously if this situation is that bad, a chat with your vet should be considered - diet?

Thanks! I looked up Caldesene but i don't think it's available in Canada. I did read that dogs are allergic to zinc oxide who's is one of the ingredients though?!

Although it looks like gold bond has the same ingredient
