If it's yeast stay away from oatmeal. It breeds yeast!

I have found that I can mix a solution in equal parts of water, baby oil (plain, unscented)and the original brown Listerine and put it in a spray bottle. Every time my basset began to scratch I would give the bottle a good shake and spray the area she was scratching and it immediately stopped her scratching. If you look at the Listerine ingredients it has several soothing essential oils. I can't tell you the last time I had to use it.

We watch her diet. We changed her food to Zignature Trout and Wild Salmon. No grains that breed yeast. She is back to normal and we only give her fresh veges for treats that are on the low glycemic index. She loves baby carrots, lettuce, celery, cucumbers, etc. I aso bathe her in Pet Meds Be Super Clean Shampoo. It has an antimicrobial and an antifungal in it. It's super thick so I dilute it 1:1 with water. It's $10 a bottle but goes a long way. You put it on the coat and work it in then let it sit on the skin for up to 10 minutes. Rinse and dry as usual. I always start her bath off with an iodine soak too to clean any yeast that may be lingering in her nail beds or pads. Be diligent and your pup will be good as new in no time, no thanks to the Vet.

I found a mixture in equal parts of Monistat , polysporin and Cortaid (all 3 can be generic) mixed together well and placed in a container with a lid works wonders. My Basset no longer scratches her ears to the point of distraction (missing fur and huge hematomas). At first I applied it weekly into her ears after cleaing with a baby wipe. Fortunately, Basset ears are nice and roomy so it's easy to get down in the ear to clean. Then I get a tiny dollop of the magic medicene and apply it tothe canal opening inside of her ears and gently rub her ears. The body heat helps melt the ointment and allows it to coat the ear canal. I now only apply it when I bath her unless I see an abundance of wax build up.

The Listerine has natural oils - Eucalyptol, Menthol, Thymol and Methyl Salicylate. This is why it is used to sooth irritated gums. It really does relieve the itching in a yeasty dog. Our Basset is having a really bad outbreak right now and she is soundly sleeping at the moment since applying the Listerine mixture on her a couple of hours ago.

When you mix it with the baby oil and the water (which dilutes the alcohol in the Listerine) there is plenty of oil in the solution. No need to add oil to the diet. I just give my Basset unrefined coconut oil as a supplement for her yeast issues.
