    Hi Lou,

    Just butting in here – if Eddy eats/drinks out of plastic bowl this might be causing/exacerbating his acne. I know this was the case with my cats (chin acne) so I switched them all to metal bowls and didn’t have any further problems.

    Also, my Pit Bull Stitch has skin problems – about a year ago he started getting lots of bumps on his body and they would bleed – at first I thought he was somehow scratching himself. The vet did a culture and we found a fungus. However, after treatment for that they haven’t fully gone away. The vet was pretty sure it was something in the air not his food. Since then I have had him on 1/4 of a tablet of Temeril P (steroid) with Milk Thistle (counter act the steroid) and he is doing pretty good BUT he still gets flair ups so what I have been using is a Gentocidal (spelling ??) spray and that stuff works great. He also gets little hot spots and again the spray clears them up by the next day.
