Hi JaCustomer,

Welcome to Just Answer. My name is Jane. I have been involved professionally with dogs in the healthcare and behavioral fields for over 20 years. I’ve worked as a Vet Assistant and Behaviorist and have extensive experience in dog reproduction, as a breeder, for even longer than that.. Canine behavioral issues and training are also my specialties. It will be my pleasure to work with you today.

I think you are talking about skin fold dermatitis. You will want to keep the area clean and dry. Benzoyl Peroxide wipes are also effective for cleaning the folds as well and to keep bacteria in the area down. You should apply miconazole cream to help clear the dermatitis if it is yeast type dermatitis. This is available over the counter at your pharmacy. It will help reduce itchiness as well. Once the dermatitis itself is cleared, keeping the area dry and free of bacteria with the wipes should help keep it cleared. You can read about skin fold dermatitis here:

http://www.vcahospitals.com/main/pet-health-information/article/animal-health/pyoderma-skin-fold-in-dogs/1061

While it isn't a homeopathic treatment, it is one that doesn't require a vet visit. Now some people believe coconut oil works for yeast dermatitis as well. Another is apple cider vinegar. You rinse the area with it or add it to your dog's water.

I sincerely ***** ***** I have helped you. Please remember to rate my service by selecting the 5 stars at the top of the screen ( rating me now does not close your question). We can continue here until you are satisfied, simply use the reply box and let me know. Thank you!
