Vet just gives steroids and or stuff
steroid does not boost the immune system It does just the opposite. It weakens the immune system> Most skin problems like allergies ans such are the result of an overactive immune system not under. So be for spending time trying to boast immune system make sure that is what you want to actual want to do. The use of steroids is counter indicated in cases of Demodectic Mange, that is any steroid use should be stopped. Find it rather hard to believe a vet would prescribe a steroid if the believe the dog had Demodectic Mange

see What Is Demodectic Mange in Dogs?
