Hi Everyone, My adolescent jack russell mix, Wilson, developed a skin rash a few years ago.
I thought it was fleas so I took the route to clear up fleas and it went away for a while but came back worse than ever last year. I went to two vets. The first vet said he had no bugs but had environmental allergies, prescribed an antibiotic. This worked, but as soon as the prescription ran out, the spots came back.
They are red pimply bumps that peel and shed the hair. They are all over him looking like flea hotspots on his belly. The second vet gave me antibiotics and an anti-inflam. Again, as soon as the medicine ran out, the spots came back. I called the vet again, he said that when the winter came the rash would go away, most likely a mold allergy. I bought coconut oil, rubbed it on him today and am going to give him some to eat tonight.

First, I thought it was mites, but after hours and hours of reading, I decided to also treat him for Yeast infection. This was after the appearance of very red skin, hotspots the bumps and black pimples was already there.
As he was a rescue, it was very difficult to gather and the process of elimination is very painful. He got a major fewer and shivering as the toxins were working out of the body. My main change was adding firstly to eliminate all starches from his food — this include potatoes, rice, sweet potatoes, carrots, peas and corn, all of which forms sugar strains and an environment yeast thrives on — so you have yeast on yeast growth.
Yeast is a spore like growth in the body. The second, very important thing was to add Coconut oil, both to food and on the skin. It is also important to wash your Jack Russel twice a week with a Medicated shampoo to wash the toxins off. The yeast infection as well as mites have a cycle of living, breeding, dying and then shedding the waste into the skin. Then, put coconut oil on the skin. You can add a few drops of Lavender to it. He is not scratching but scratching after treatment can be a sign of healing, as long as it is not excessive.
