Hi there, I'm Dr. Helen

Is NaLa on a flea preventative?

No she's not

Are you seeing any fleas or flea dirt? The way I check for these is to put NaLa on a moistened white sheet or pillow case, ruffle her fur, and see if any black specks that turn brown or red fall onto the sheet/pillow case.

Where on her body is the rash?

No she does not have fleas
All over her body

Okay.  I would recommend taking her to a veterinarian so that she can get some medication to decrease her itch.  Until then, you can bath her in cool or cold water, and pat her dry.  Heat will make her itchier.

Ok I appreciate it
thank you

Hydrocortisone spray won't be as effective as cool water baths.  Also- sometimes flea allergic dogs can be so itchy, it is difficult to find the flea or fleas- so I'd also recommend a flea control.  Good luck with her.

Thank you

I'm glad I could help.  Don't hesitate to reach out again with any questions or concerns.  NaLa is a lucky dog.
