Because Molly drools so much, and the fact that she is big-time overshot, the saliva has rotted her lower lips and they are all red and itchy. Her scratching has also caused a fairly large spot on her neck to be red and hairless which is now also itchy. How many times to I have to go the vet before they'll give me the correct meds?! Last time (2 weeks ago)it was a week of Clavimox and washing affected areas after she's eaten with Nolvascan scrub. This hasn't done anything to stop the scratching. I've tryed Desetin, Gold Bond, other baby diaper rash powders, etc. Her skin is tons better after the allergy (dust mites, mold and a couple of grasses that grow near the beach) shots she's been getting since this spring, but this is a different problem. What about some kind of hydrocortisone used externally? Is there a powder with hydrocortisone? I have a Hydrocortisone leave-on lotion that I used on a foster called Resicort (the lotion, not the foster!). It worked for her (along with shampoo therapy), but the leftover in the bottle is 3 years old. A negative left over from the skin allergies is that even though her skin is better, she still licks in-between the pads of her right front foot making it all red and swollen. As long as I keep a bootie on it at night and when I'm not around it's ok. The best medicine I've found for that is a hunter's product called Tuf-foot. It dyes her foot blue (Gentian Violet is one ingredient) but who cares. Any thoughts or advice would be greatly appreciated. I knew I should've been a vet, I would have saved my self a fortune! Also, my 1 1/2 yr. old Lab already has those callouses on his elbows that big dogs get from laying on hard floors. Any product I could put on them to soften them and/or diminish them? Thanks guys! Belinda.
