Hi, Welcome to Just Answer. I'm Chris, a small animal Vet based in the UK. I am reviewing your question and will get back to you as soon as possible
Could you send me a picture of the skin lesions you are describing? Also could you let me know which flea/parasite treatments you use for him and when they were last applied? Thanks
Ok, the brown staining could be consistent with yeast overgrowth. I would continue to bathe with 2% chlorhexidine (hibiscrub) solution, malaseb or clorexyderm twice weekly for at least 4 weeks. I would also consider changing to a prescription flea treatment to reduce the risk of flea allergy dermatitis. An antihistamine such as piriton can be give (4mg twice daily). If still no response is seen then she will need a veterinary examination and possibly prescription treatment.
I hope that helps address your question?
You're welcome. I hope she starts to feel more comfortable soon!
