Our expert says:
Flower of sulphur is a remedy used for certain skin conditions many years ago. Its use has been surpassed by modern medicine as it is not very effective (unless used when indcated - i.e. if the cause of the itchy skin is sensitive to sulphur then it must be used). Itchyness has numerous causes and unfortunately it is a matter of eliminating all the causes one-by-one. This make any skin "work-up" time consuming and expensive. It is often necessary to try 3 or 4 anti-histamine treatments before the effective one is found. The new foods manufactured for skin conditions have done a lot to help these dogs. Even though corticosteroids are symptomatic treatment it is sometimes necessary to use them to break the itchy cycle while other treatments are allowed to take their effect.
