You may also want to take a look at what you're feeding your pups, a lot of times skin conditions are directly related to the quality of food being given. Many vet brands (like Science Diet) and grocery store stock (like Purina and Pedigree) have less than ideal ingredients in them (things you can't readily identify), and cause awful reactions in dogs, leading to conditions like you're describing. The dog food forum here has some excellent suggestions on food choices (I personally feed my 2 Solid Gold Wolf King), though others can make recommendations based on your breeds needs. I would also recommend taking your dogs to the vets for allergy testing, that can def. be a skin condition cause. Good luck, and please keep us posted on how they fare
