[WORKED TEMPORARILY] I am trying the Borax/Peroxide solution and it seemed to be helping but the last couple of days there has been a lot of itching again. I did the treatment 3X the first week then have been doing it once a week since, for a total of 6 treatments.
My dog did throw up the first time as she licked off some of the solution, so I put a cone on her after that, treated the entire body then when she was dry and I could take the cone off, sprayed the head and ears a couple of hours later. Maybe this is where I went wrong? I am also having trouble getting the head wet enough without getting it in the eyes or near the mouth (which might cause vomiting again).
Anyway, need some help, the first 5 treatments seemed to show improvement but the last one just seemed to cause more itching.
She is mostly scratching at her ears and the insides of her legs and armpit area. She did have red bumps at one point and I did treat with a topical pesticide at that time and the bumps did not come back but the itching returned so I then decided to try the Borax/Peroxide solution rather than give a pesticide again.
