Rash and immune system issues in a canineHello,
I have a 6 month old who has been struggling with health issues since coming into our home.
She has had conjunctivitis and an ear yeast infection.
Now she has a rash that is causing her great distress. It is pink, bumpy, patchy and itchy. It's on her underside but is worst in her armpits. Her armpits are often wet, which is significant since dogs lack sweat glands in the armpits.
She has scabs from scratching. There are small dots of blood stains on her bed some mornings and bits of crusty skin.
She spends her day either agitated, doing nothing, or sleeping. She is often misbehaving or sometimes just standing in one place, seemingly unhappy.
Her ears smell
She prefers warmth. She used lie on the vent when heat was on. Now she chooses to lie in the sun, next to the front door or on a carpet/blanket/bed. Rarely on bare floor.
She used to enjoy being touched. Now, if we approach slow and low, she will let us touch and pet her neck and eventually her back or tummy but she has to be in the mood.
Sometimes she seems to want comfort, sometimes prefers solitude?
She likes to lie close to us but not on top of us when sleeping.
She is very nervous and sensitive to sound and abrupt movements. She startles easy and gets over excited and aggressive when she sees other dogs, people and loud, or big vehicles.
She sometimes takes a few minutes to start eating. She sometimes vomits after eating.
She likes going out for walks but sometimes just bites and pulls the leash and jumps up to chew the leash until we go home.
Any help is appreciated.

kadwa on 2017-06-19This thread continues beneath the following ad.Thank you Kadwa. I was under the impression that each remedy should be given alone for a period before moving on to another. Is this not the case sometimes?

Thank you. So in the interim before you first responded they had started her on Silicia and sulphur but 6ch.
Today is day 4, on both. They plan to pick up the 30ch tomorrow and start with that.
In the meantime though her itchiness has intensified. Could this be due to the wrong potency?
Other things were changed at the same time. She was put on a duck only diet to try to eliminate allergies. We're wondering if she may be allergic to duck. She's also on enzymes, probiotics and omega 3s.
Thank you for your help.

She has developed a sore, that looks a little pussy on her paw and her underarms, where the rash has primarily been, is swollen and has hives.
She mistakenly had another dose of enzymes and probiotics this morning, but will not have more from now on. I suspect she's allergic to something in one of them or else to duck meat.
whatsmyremedy on 2017-06-23Silicea 30 should be used.
