I rescued an approx 2 year old plott hound mix 6 weeks ago. She went into heat 2 weeks ago. This week she has developed a rash around her head and neck. I checked her for fleas and bathed her with a mild lavender soap. She is still scratching today. What can I do to sooth her rash and itching?

Hello,

This is Dr. Christian. I'd like to help. Does she take any medications or have other medical conditions? How much does she weigh? Did you see any fleas?
