After, years of research with my own skin issues, eczema, my doctor and I were able to narrow it down to fungus and foods feeding the fungus.

I went on a strict diet of eating no sugar or starchy foods and started using different fungus killing herbs. After, 4 years we have finally got it under control. Yay!
I knew fungus can affect our pets too. So, I changed our dog's food too so many times and the problem just kept getting worse instead of better.
After, years of research I found a website called Nzymes and they had the answers I was looking for. They even have a check-list you can fill out to see just what the issue is with your pet.
Finally, I had answers and they were just the same as for me. Fungus! So, I bought one of the recommended brands on the list that I found at a local pet store.
The cost is just the same as any other brand but the ingredients are far better. He loves it. It is called Fromm Gold for small dog breeds. Not all stores carry it so head to the website above at Nzymes and you'll find their store locator helpful.
My poor Yorkie, Spencer has been having the same issues for just about as long as I have. I also bought their protocol remedies for his the fungus and gut health.
He starts on it next week and will continue on it for life.
I also suspect there is mold and fungus in our house that we can not see. We replaced the a/c duct work years ago so I know that is not where it is coming from. I keep the house pretty clean so I know that is not where it is coming from. But, there is nothing I can do about it outside.
But, I can do something about it on my patio and front porch where it loves to grow.
I finally did more research and bought a product to kill all mold and fungus and it prevents any from growing back.
It is called Mold Control as you can see below. Find it at Lowe's home improvement stores.
To further prove that this stuff really works we tested in the apartment that my daughter recently moved into. It is a lovely community in Orange City, FL but it is poorly maintained.
She used teatree oil and a raft of other essential oils and made up a cleaning solution. It helped but you could still smell mold.
After, spraying this mold control under the sinks in bathroom and kitchen it smells so much better.
I can now visit without getting a sore throat or burning itching eyes. Yay!
If you try any of my research on your pet skin issues I would love to hear about it. Leave me a comment below and I'll respond a.s.a.p.
Thank you for taking time to read my thoughts and happenings in my life. I don't know much but what I do know I share!
Sending You Sunshine,
Marsha J and Spencer-buddy
