I have tried changing too different "skin sensitive" shampoos but it seems to make it worse. I recently switched to an oak meal based shampoo and the redness seemed to fade slightly

Poor Crystal. Being itchy is no fun! Do you have Crystal on a flea/tick prevention currently (like Frontline, Advantix, Nexguard) that you give every 30 days?

Hello,

I am sorry to hear you are worried about Crystal Lu. My name is Rebecca. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help. It appears your first expert has left the conversation. Can I be of help?

Since I can't see and examine her, more information will be helpful. Are you using a flea product on her? Have you tried anything besides the shampoo for her itching such as supplements or antihistamines?

I hope to hear from you soon.
