How To Treat a dog skin yeast infection with Banixx
How to get rid of and treat my dog’s skin yeast infection or dog’s itchy skin?
Is your dog scratching & itching? The jingling tags on his collar serve as a constant reminder. Your poor pup, he’s at it again, scratching and biting, licking and shaking. If your dog is plagued with itchy skin, it may be a yeast infection, aka fungus, that’s common in dogs and puppies. Yeast is a form of fungus (also called yeast dermatitis) which can cause dry itchy skin, skin redness/rashes, and pain to your dog’s skin. Because your dog is so uncomfortable he will scratch his body or belly until it is red, sore and irritated and possibly even infected.
You are not alone with this. Itching, medically known as pruritis, affects many dogs and for a variety of reasons. To effectively treat itching means finding its underlying root cause, as itchiness is not a disease but a symptom. There can be several causes of your dog’s itchy skin:
To get rid of and treat your dog’s skin yeast infection (or dog’s itchy skin), use Banixx as an excellent anti-fungal solution (yeast is a fungus) that is not only odor-free but painless for your pup. The application is straightforward and brings substantial relief in short order. Simply apply Banixx daily to your dog’s skin infection being sure to saturate your dog’s skin. It is also a good idea to massage Banixx gently into your dog’s skin for complete saturation. It’s often a good idea to distract your dog so that he does not lick it off and Banixx has a good opportunity to work. Distractions can range from a treat, to a walk, throwing his favorite ball or simply a good head rub or neck massage. Banixx works on contact; it’s steroid & antibiotic-free, it’s not sticky or oily and completely non-toxic. Apply Banixx 2-3 times daily to your dog’s skin patting it gently into the skin for maximum absorption by the skin. Licking Banixx will cause no harm to your dog but will remove the Banixx solution and slow the recovery progress. Many products are advertised as itchy dog skin cures but the answer generally lies in a multi-faceted approach involving diet, environment and a quality skin application such as Banixx.

“Darwin had suffered with hot spots and itchy skin problems forever…nothing seemed to help and I did not want to have steroids administered since I was afraid of the long term consequences for my pup. Luckily for us, I found Banixx. I can’t thank [Banixx] enough for making this product. It is hands down the best thing out there for hot spots and my dog’s itchy, irritated skin. Darwin thanks you, too!” ~Rachel
Aga, a Scottish Terrier who writes for “In and around Horse Country” magazine, reports this about Banixx:
“I have been dermatologically challenged over the last year, due to a chronic skin yeast infection and have had to wear coats to protect my skin from endless scratching … my owner tried this new product, Banixx. She began spraying me daily with it. The itching and scratching stopped within one day and my hair began growing back … I grew enough hair that I needed to be clipped! Let me tell you, that was a real achievement! I am joining the list of customers who rave about Banixx. Four paws WAY up from me!”
My husband and I recently rescued a seven year old chocolate lab dog named Forrest. He came to us with a double ear infection and skin yeast infection. We took him to the vet to be treated, but the spray and antibiotics they gave us didn’t help. My poor rescue boy was absolutely miserable. He was constantly itching! Between using the Banixx shampoo and spray he is now comfortable with no sores or inflammation on his stomach. Forrest says, “thank you Banixx!”
Possible causes of your dog’s itchy skin:
Food Allergies are quite common in dogs because some dog foods contain too much corn, soy or other “fillers.” Switching to a higher protein food, including meals and treats, may make a difference. Many dogs do well on a fish-based diet but be patient while your dog’s system assimilates the new food. It can take as long as a month before his system absorbs the new food and the allergic symptoms improve. As you move to a new food, be sure to apply Banixx Pet Care solution morning and evening to help relieve these symptoms. Click here to find a store near you that carries Banixx.
Parasites, especially fleas or ticks, are a familiar suspect in canine itching. The bites irritate your dog, and he scratches them. Some dogs are hypersensitive to flea saliva. One bite can trigger all-over itching for these sensitive pooches. A quick check of your flea/tick prevention regime may indicate that you are late with a dose. Treatments require consistency for best effect; miss a dose, and your dog becomes a target! If this is the case, as you get back on target with the parasite prevention program, keep applying Banixx Pet Care solution morning and evening to help relieve the symptoms
Bacterial and fungal infections of your dog’s skin can also cause itching. Scabs, discharge, and odor are frequent companions to this cause of itchiness. Subsequent hot spots and infections add to your dog’s misery. If your vet thinks this type of infection is the culprit, she most likely will prescribe an antibiotic. But if the itching continues, there’s a good chance your dog may have an allergy.
Allergies can include anything in your dog’s environment such as pollens, molds, dust or even grass. If your dog’s itching flares up during a particular season, the allergy struggle may be seasonal, making the cause easier to find. Testing can be done by your vet, and an allergy medication may be administered. Dogs with year-round itching may have an environmental allergy and/or a food allergy. This allergy investigation requires time and patience and is not always conclusive. Banixx can help with this allergy situation also, but, Banixx is not a systemic (internal) product so will act as a band-aid until you discover the underlying allergen causing the problem.
“I was a little weary that this would work since it has no smell and looks likes water. I’ve been using it for only a few days and my American bulldog/Great Dane mixs skin is already looking better! He had some aggravated skin on his chin under his lip and a skin fold on his stomach and it went from red and dry to pink in only using it 3 times. I highly recommend this. He most likely had some dry skin or a fungal infection but this works incredibly well! I spray him straight from the bottle but the area in his chin I spray lightly and damp with a paper towel. “Meggil, via Chewy
“Great product! My dog has been to the vet numerous times for recurrent skin issues. After taking medication he would clear up for a couple of weeks but then the skin issues would come right back. I stumbled upon Banixx while browsing online and it has been a game-changer! My dog’s skin has completely cleared up, hair is growing back where it had fallen out, and his fur is so soft. Highly recommend!!”Leigha P., via Amazon
“Great Product, my old dog had a skin infection and was being treated with meds but she kept losing her hair, vet said she could only control the infection but her hair would not come back, within a week not only has her hair grown back but it’s kept her infection under control a lot better than all the meds we had to give her. Spent over 1000.00 trying to clear this up, and all the meds made the dog throw up all the time. Try this, it works 100%.”Rita S., via Amazon
” My dog had a fairly common condition that made his paws smell like stinky Fritos. What a Smell! His feet were red from constant licking. The vet said it was an allergy, it was yeast related [that results in dog skin yeast infection] and I should buy expensive special food from him. I did not do this but, I used to sell Banixx, so, one day, the light went on. I soaked a gauze in Banixx and every day I cleaned his feet with it, giving special attention to the area between his toes. In a few weeks the problem was solved. Now he’s clear and we’re both feeling fine. I treat him every other day as a preventative. This was a bad yeast problem. Maybe others can be helped by my experience.” Dwight B, Retired Animal Health OTC Sales Person, from Albertson, NC
” Our mostly-white bulldog has had skin irritations off and on, and mainly she incessently licks and chews her tail. This spray helped immediately. We apply it two times per day, have noticed a huge decrease in her irritations. Also the ingredients are not harmful to canines, so even if she licks it, it is not a problem. We turn it into a treat time for her so she thinks it’s special. HIghly recommended.” Stella, via Amazon
