Doing a ton better BUT...

After going back, and forth with fighting skin issues, sores, bald spots, chewing, and scratching I've 100% narrowed it down to two causes. Let me explain.. I went through all the basics of allergy tests, testing for parasites, changing foods, shampoos, you name it! Finally got a cream for burns, rashes, yeast infections, and fungus through the local hospital. Lyderm 0.05% Clotrimaderm 1:1 Compound, and it has worked amazingly well for Kyra! What took months to accomplish has only now taken weeks. Now for the problem.. Prescription is running out with no chance for a refill. I've tried to take her off it and the sores, and scratching returns in a matter of days. Problem number two.. Vet is trying to charge me 200$ for the visit, and who knows what else for the yeast / anti fungus meds. I swear these vets are like doctors now, and are only interested in your money for their prescriptions as once you no longer need them your kicked to the curb. So what can I do now? Help from the vet is out of the question, and I will not discuss that option any further. Need antifungal / yeast meds I can get over the counter. Please help!!

Have you washed all your dog bedding and cleaned all of your dog favorite resting places in the house? He could be contaminating himself all over again.

I tried that and she lasted about 3 days then decided she'd rather starve... nasty squirts too! EEK! Nope, I'm sticking to finding some over the counter antifungal antiyeast cream or shampoo or something... Be so much easier if I had a good vet but only have one in town, and that unfortunately isn't going to happen! Help is appreciated guys! Need asap!

We did do scrapings for demodex so perhaps. Either way though, vet will no longer help me!

Well, long story short, I decided that the vet was not doing much in helping my dog, and took matters into my own hands. It was definately the right choice! Now the vet will only treat my dog if I pay for a bunch of useless expensive tests that will tell the same as what I've already told. I dont wanna get into the details but it seems this vet only cares about money! Already spent thousands for nothing over the span of 3 years when in my hands cost barely anything, and have had much success!
