3. A yeast overload due to an unstable immune system or hormone imbalance.

4. A fungal overload due to an unstable immune system &/or long term wet &/or humid weather.

    You can try withholding certain foods for a week or two then re-introduce them to see if there is a reaction.

Try using tuna or sardines instead of meat as a high protein diet can exacerbate

the problem.

 

Emphasis should be placed on addressing these issues so that further skin conditions may be avoided. See your Vet if symptoms persist.
