If the vets just say to watch him, I wouldn't worry. Eating ointment may cause diarrhea (could be the reason for the big poo). Answered by Aleisha Staples 2 years ago.
If you can't trust three vets, you won't do any better here. But that stuff is not much risk to a dog -- just don't make it a habit. You won't always be so lucky. Answered by Shakira Garrott 2 years ago.
I would suggest that you keep an eye on him for a while, just to be sure that he doesn't start acting different. If you notice that he's acting different, I would suggest that you take him to a vet. Good luck and I hope I helped you! Answered by Myong Scherer 2 years ago.

Try going to a medical supplies store. They carry many things you don't usually find over the counter at a normal price. You might also go to an ER (I cringe at saying this since ERs are really crowded due to people with no insurance seeking basic medical care but you gotta do what you gotta do).

Anybody out there, heard of this problem. Answered by Latashia Brosman 2 years ago.
Jackie, I do not know what you have without looking at it. I have some suspicions and I was wondering if perhaps before the scaling occurs you start out with tiny itchy vesicles? Then it progresses to the scaling, peeling and cracking open. I am thinking that you could have dyshidrosis or a dermatophytid reaction. As you well know any time there is a break in the skin you set yourself up for bacteria and fungus to enter. Having said that dermatophyte infections can produce circulating fungal antigens that give rise to immunologically mediated hypersensitity reactions in the skin. If you would be diagnosed with dyshidrosis then Clobex 0.05% application bid or Ultravate 0.05% bid may help. These are potent creams and don't over use them. If you continue with problems and the obvious like eczema etc are ruled out let me suggest having an ELISA test drawn and sent to ELISA/ACT Biotechnologies LLC at Sterling VA, your doctor can do this for you. Note this is a very expensive test, but it will tell you any allergies you may have and not even know. Your manifestations of cracking, peeling, could be due to an allergen that you are touching or eating. Just by stopping eating a "trigger'" food could stop the problem. Another option you can do is to buy a packet of pH hydrion test papter. This test tape measures acid-alkaline states and should test the pH between 5.5 to 8.0. First thing in the morning cut off 2 inches and dip your urine into it. You measure the color of your test strip with the color chart on the back of the test tape packet. Any number below 7 means that your urine is on the acid side. The lower the number the more acidic the conditon. Your body is a very complicated chemical processing plant with 60 trillion cells involved in 6 trillion chemical reactions each second. While chemical processes can occure amid an acid environment, it is certainly not the ideal. An alkaline internal state is required for ideal chemical functioning and for the achievement of optimal health. If your pH readings are regularly below 6.5 you may do well to alkalinize your diet by following a special diet. The book I have "The Alkaline Way" is designed for medical personnel and gets quit deep into biochemistry. You can go to the bookstore or probably on line and get the equivalent written for lay persons. Some doctors do not ascribe to these theories despite so called "proof" in my professional journals. Give yourself 6 months and see if there is any improvement. I am afraid that you will end up with constant skin infections down the road if you do not get to the bottom of this problem. Following an alkaline way program doesn't cost anymore it's just studying what you can and can't eat. The ELISA test may be paid for by insurance, and if it is an immunologically mediated hypersensitity reaction of the skin you will thank yourself. Realize however, that this site is not a site meant for dealing with such problems and if you can't see the problem it's hard to tell what it is. I suspect if this is a chronic problem that never gets better you may thank yourself for a least exploring these options. By all means go to your doctor! They may also want to do a skin (punch biopsy) to see what is the causative etiology. Answered by Cole Callaham 2 years ago.
This is actually a staff infection in your hand that makes cracking, splitting of skin, and bleeding. The best ways to treat this are through Nystantin medication or antifungal creams, because it is a fungal disease. I wash my hands constantly from working in a hospital and put on protective hand cream before washing and working. Dermatitis is caused from wetness staying on the skin for too long of a period and then fungal bacteria seeping into the skin. This is a contagious thing. Treat it Asap. Answered by Matilda Fitzerald 2 years ago.
You may have ringworm on your hand. If you aren't sure, you should see your doctor. You can look up ringworm on the internet and some sites have pictures. Try getting an antifungal cream. You can get it over the counter. Treatment takes about four weeks usually but it will probably get better before treatment is completed but keep using the cream for the entire course of treatment.

this is probley eczema, it ussally is stressed induced or topical allergine. I know because I' am a cronic suffer. YOu should go to your doctor for some cordizone creme.

They're right, it's probably eczema. Most people who develope it as an adult get it on their hands. It stinks and it hurts and there's no cure. Sometimes the stuff doctors give you can work to tame a flare up and other times you'll just have to live with it. Answered by Alphonse Spaeth 2 years ago.
have you een a doctor about this? It's probably eczema and needs corticosteroids. They won't make you stronger but they might help your hands.

First you should go see a dermatologist. The combination that worked for my psoriasis, and I had it all over so bad I could barely put on clothes sometimes, was Dovonex and Ultravate combination. Also what helped the most was the tanning bed. Go in small intervals, like 8 min 3 times a week. It's safer in small bits, and very very helpful. I know how your feeling that everyone can see only your spots, but most people don't see them or at the worst think that they are poison ivy. I promise it does go away, somewhat. I used to have it over my entire body, and no the only spots I have is one tiny dot on my lower back and one of my elbows. It will get better just hang in there and stay calm, they say it's caused by stress! Best of luck! Answered by Leah Wilkus 2 years ago.
I know your problem!I hope you don't have it as bad as I do! It depends where you have it, as to what medication you would need. You probably know it affects the skin, the scalp, the nails and the joints. The usual affect is on the skin. Depending on the type of psoriasis that you have normally affects the treatment. Supposing that it is Plaque type, You may find that the ointment 'Daivobet' and the capsules 'Regender' may help. Diprosalic is helpful if it is affecting your scalp. A coal tar solution dissolved in a bath of warm water for you to soak in 2 or 3 times a week is helpful. A fairly effective shampoo I have found is 'Ionil shampoo'. The three medications I mentioned at the start are, I believe, prescription only drugs. Remember that Sunshine is very good for this condition in all of it's forms. Summertime is good for psoriasis!

Alternative treatment for you, check out this website www.beewild.com. Here is part of the blurb and it also has lots of testimonials from people who have had alot of success in using their skincare cream. Medically Trialled -Steroid Free Apis Mellifera Skin Care Cream was the first in our range of therapeutic creams to be developed by Company Director Robert Davidson who used the cream on his own psoriasis with great success before offering it to the public. Mr Davidson worked for years to extract and isolate the substances bees produce to keep their hives disease free and he blended these extracts into a cream that appears to both boost the immune system and increase the body’s natural healing abilities. The two extracts - Extract A (organic hydrocarbons) and Extract B (proteins) have also been found to contain Coic Acid; which has antifungal properties, Caffeic Acid; demonstrated to be effective against tumours, bacteria and viruses as well as having anti-inflamatory and immunomodulatory properties, and Linoleic Acid; used to treat such conditions as eczema and acne. In 1999 in the first controlled medical trials of the Skin Care Cream, the Wellington (New Zealand) School of Medicine concluded that: "Cautious support can be given to the claims of the manufacturer that Apis Mellifera Skin Care Cream is effective in the treatment of eczema".The cream has also successfully passed cytotoxicity tests. The benefits of using Apis Mellifera Skin Care Cream are many: * Medically trialled. * No known side effects. * No toxins. * Can be used while taking cortisone and steroids. * It’s effective on such a large range of skin and allergic complaints that it can replace most of the expensive creams and lotions in your medicine cabinet. * Heals broken inflamed skin and stops the itch that can so often rob you of your quality of life. * In use for over 10 years - hundreds of testimonials acknowledging its effectiveness. * Natural extracts blended with the gentlest and most natural of pharmaceutical creams. * No cortisone or steroids. * No prescription needed. * Long lasting. * 100% money back guarantee. * We’re only a phone call away if you have any questions. Apis Mellifera Skin Care Cream can be used on a wide range of complaints: * Skin complaints such as psoriasis, excema, measles, mumps, chicken pox and shingles. * Allergic skin reactions such as acne and insect bites. * Skin burns – use to reduce recovery time and to reduce scaring on chemical burns, radiation burns, liquid burns and sunburn. * Virus infections such as shingles, cold sores, herpes simplex and herpes zoster. * Allergic respiratory reactions such as asthma, hay fever and sinus (rub the cream over the affected area several times a day and over time these reactions may be reduced. * Reduces swelling in bruises and haemorrhoids (piles). * Fungal infections such as athlete’s foot and cracked heels. * Cuts and broken skin heal faster. * Recommended for skin ulcers and used for this purpose by a number of New Zealand retirement and nursing homes Answered by Lyn Stripling 2 years ago.

I have had it for over 15 years and I do have it under control...except for my head...I just hate using the olux foam on it and having steroids that close to my brain LOL! I only use topical things now, but I did have methotrexate shots that worked extremely well (about 10 years ago) but, they had other adverse affects and I didn't know that women of child bearing age should NOT take it. I wasn't using it when I was trying to concieve, but after I stopped using it and later became married, I did have 2 miscarriages, and thankfully 2 healthy children as well, and now I am finished with having any more. I am sure that it did have an affect on my reproductive organs. Obviously I don't use that doctor anymore. What do you use? How long, and what are the benefits to each? Do you or have you ever used self injections? I think I could do it, but I don't know anything about them. I do have my own tanning bed that I bought just for the treatment of psoriasis and it does work very well to keep everything "under control".,,,but just not my head. I use olux foam (head) and temovate ointment and cream for everthing else. I have used tons of other cream and ointments, but I always go back to the temovate (clobetasol) or ultravate (halbetasol) because they seem to work the fastest. Thanks!

Vitamin D3 supplement about 10,000iu-20,000iu per day. (It's safe, been doing this for years) Add vinegar to your shampoo. I have always used normal shampoos that made my skin worse because they were highly alkaline. When I add vinegar in it drops the ph of the shampoo. My skin is 100% better because of this.

Is psoriasis curable? if curable what is the treatment?
Asked by Silva Rerko 2 years ago.
Psoriasis is a life Chronic Skin disease. Chronic means that it is an incurable disease, 10 percent of the population on earth has this. The treatment options are quoted below as well as the sources in the source list. "There are 3 basic types of treatments for psoriasis: (1) topical therapy (drugs used on the skin), (2) phototherapy (light therapy), and (3) systemic therapy (drugs taken into the body). All of these treatments may be used alone or in combination." Answered by Edelmira Melara 2 years ago.
Psoriasis is a condition that can be treated and controlled, but I'm unsure if it is curable. My daughter's scalp and areas around the hair line are affected. There are alot of medications containing tar or other chemicals, but they are usually expensive or smell bad. It helps to have her hair thinned out once in awhile so her scalp can breath. When shampooing lather it twice, use only your finger tips, not your fingernails, rinse with warm water, and dry using a towel to rub the scalp. We found Pert for dandruff, works better than any other product. It also helps with her skin. Sometimes it will flare up when she takes certain antibiotics or medicines. Talk to a dermatologist.
