Home Remedies For Rashes

1. Apple Cider Vinegar:

Apple cider vinegar’s acidic nature provides respite from inflamed skin, as it’s a natural antiseptic. Mix 50% unfiltered, raw apple cider vinegar with 50% of warm water. Spray the mixture in your pup’s fur and skin where find the rashes/inflammation. You can either put a couple of cups into a warm bath for your pet or take the 50/50 apple cider vinegar to dilute the solution in a cotton ball to clean out the skin rashes. When using the spray bottle, make sure to avoid hotspots or open sores.

Epsom Salts: Epsom salt is mainly used to relieve skin itches but it is also used for healing wounds/rashes. An Epsom salt warm compress or soak can relieve itchiness and inflammation naturally. For rashes or itchiness, mix 1 teaspoon of Epsom salt in 2 cups of warm water and immerse the area of the rash or soak a washcloth with the mix and hold it on the inflamed area as a compress.

2. Fortify The Dog Skin Diet:

For dogs that are prone to rashes such as those affected by dermal fragility syndrome, Veterinarians usually give suggestions for control or management of the problem since there is no proper cure. Choose a minimally-processed, nutritious food that is free of chemicals, colorings, toxic additives, and preservatives. Select foods free of allergens (hypoallergenic) by diagnostic testing and provide a balanced diet (without flavors, thickeners, coatings). Try food sensitivity testing and go for an elimination diet - addition or exclusion of certain foods for a short period of time and checking for adverse reactions.

3. Dog Skin Nourishing Oils:

Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that helps to prevent skin issues. Take a little coconut oil in your palms and rub it to warm it and massage your pet’s fur smoothly or lightly brush the fur. Coconut oil lotions can also relieve skin inflammation and dry skin. Other essential oils that can be used for dry skin are Cedarwood, Jojoba, Rose, Carrot seed, Lavender, and olive oil.
