Has anyone on the forum used Skin-Eze for their dog's allergy related skin problems?

Murray's armpits had become so hypersensitive this summer that I couldn't use Gentocin or Malaseb any longer to control his yeast and hotspots- any topicals would cause his skin to become inflamed. He had eruptive sores, was on antibiotics, prednisone, had cortisone injections , 3Vcaps,etc. - nothing was helping.

The vet told me to stop using topicals altogether, but his skin kept getting worse and worse- he was biting himself bloody, and the yeast was out of control. Finally the vet recommended Atopica, which Murray would be on indefinitely. I really didn't want to have him on medication long term.

Someone told me about an herbal product called Skin-Eze they had tried which seemed to help their dog, so I thought I'd try it before I started him on Atopica.

I've been using Skin-Eze Spray on his armpits for about a week, and it seems to both soothe and heal his skin. The armpit skin is actually starting to look like normal skin for the first time in 3 years- it has been chronically inflamed with eruptive sores for years, and it's actually starting to look healthy. He is also taking Skin-Eze capsules.

Now, the weather has changed, and maybe that's a factor in his improvement, but honestly, his skin has not looked this normal for years, no matter what the season-

The manufacturer says it will not help every dog, but that it does help many dogs- and I think this is really helping Murray.

Has anyone else here used this product, and if so, did it help your dog?

I hope this really works for u....... im going through the same problem with one of my babies, and have tried everything even given him allergy shots that hasn't slowed him down my vet has told me to do along with all the meds, I have not had much luck with all the above. Do u order this on line or do u get it at a health or nutrition store? Its to the point where I don't get any sleep because this goes on all nite long, with short breaks in between. Its very hard to watch him because I know that he is one miserable hound

I ordered it on line- if you google "Skin-Eze", the 'Allergic Pets' site will come up.

I know how you feel- I've tried everything (I even bought an air filter for the room he's in most often) short of long term prednisone or Atopica- so far the Skin-Eze seems to be helping, but I don't mean to endorse it wholeheartedly because he's only been on it a short time, and the improvements I'm seeing might be weather related- I just don't know, and that's why I posted to see if anyone else had good results with this.

If you try it, please let me know what results you see-
