    Hi Laura

    Sorry about the moderated post - it was because you put the link in it and it's only your second post. I'm not sure how many posts you have to make before we trust you're not spamming but 2 isn't enough. And it looks like an ordinary post to me so i don't always notice to fix it until someone complains (usually the poster) about not being able to see it. Anyone who wants to go to the link will have to cut and paste and remove the spaces... google proofing.

    I hate when people misuse the word "chemical" when they mean toxic or harmful chemicals. Oxygen and water are chemicals. We're made of chemicals. We breath chemicals and we are one big chemical reaction. Or lots of little ones.

    So Laura D - how often do you wash your dog with soap and not just plain water?

    There are some people who are allergic to water and some tap water has a lot of chlorine and other salts in it - especially adelaide water.

    What Grevillia47 said about the tea - you make tea (and you put it in a bucket of cold water?) and when it's cool you sponge it on the dog. Didn't really do a lot for my dog, not as much as keeping her off the grass and going to the beach more (salt and rotting sea veg gets hosed off after with plain water).

    Hey all! Ok, so tried the goat milk... gave her relief for all of about 12 hours :/ So not a success. She's still itching. Thankfully at the moment I am home a bit or my partner is and we are able to stop her from scratching herself too much. I just feel so bad for her though. I'd hate to be that itchy all the time.

    Where do I get this tea from you all are talking about? I guess that's the next thing to try.

    As for how much I bath her, not a lot since bathing her doesn't seem to help with the itching. In fact it used to sometimes make it worse, yet I will admit with the goat milk soap it didn't make it worse at all and did give some relief - temporary as it was. Though I have read you have to use the soap for a month or so before you really start to see benefits, but I usually only bath my dog once every 3-4 weeks, sometimes she goes longer than that without having a bath depending on what she's been doing so I don't see how the soap will help much using it so rarely. Oh and I've never bathed her with just plain water because doing that just makes her smell super doggy. Though if bathing with just plain water is the answer I'd take it.

    I guess I really do just need something I can run onto her skin and sometimes into her fur on a daily basis to help with the itching but I've yet to find anything that really helps besides curash. I don't mind using that, but often she licks a lot of it off or it gets all over things which is annoying but worth it to give her some relief.

    I got mine from a health food shop.

    The brand is Hilde Hemmes Herbals
    website on the pack is About Information - About Us

    Or you might be able to buy the flower in a herb specialist garden centre and grow it. Calendula officinalis

    I think it's daisy of some sort.

    Doesn't say what country its from - I'm usually a bit anal about that.

    Thanks for the link. I'll see about ordering some online. I live in the country so no health store near me.

    I also need to find the time to take her to the beach more. I don't live that far from one and it's certainly worth a shot.
