I found a bottle of Tea Tree Oil Conditioner by Giovanni at Costco. I've read that Tea Tree Oil really helps to alleive itching/scratching. It was $3.99 for a big bottle. Got it and am keeping it at the pool. Every day when we are done swimming I've been using this creme rinse on him. It also has Peppermint and Euculypsis in it.. smells wonderful... and... he is not nearly as itchy!!!
I don't recommend it for those who might be showing as it makes his coat super SOFT and silky... but for the itchies... it really seems to be doing good!!!!
Great news!!! Anything that helps is good!

I believe I do remember hearing that Tea Tree Oil is good for the skin!
Glad you found something to help him. I used Tea Shampoo for dogs a few times & I liked it.
I sure hope it continues to give him some relief.

glad he is getting some relief, I used concentrated pure tea tree oil on Barnsley's hot spots and it really helped those so I am sure that is helping his itchies. He probably smells great all the time now ;D
So glad that you found something that is helping him with the itchies !!
