Personal Experience: The Catalyst for a Natural Solution

My pet Tula and I have faced itchy skin due to the dry winter air. Initially, I used a topical steroid, but its side effects led me to seek a natural alternative.

Creating the Anti-Itch Cream in My Kitchen Lab

In my kitchen-turned-lab, I developed a unique cream combining anti-inflammatory, anti-itch, and antibacterial properties. This blend provided significant relief for both me and Tula.

Key Ingredients of the Anti-Itch Cream

The cream consists of coconut oil, castor oil, sunflower oil, shea butter, and beeswax. These ingredients are known for their skin benefits, including moisturizing, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory effects.

Steps to Prepare the Healing Cream

Preparing the cream involves melting the ingredients together, cooling the mixture, and then setting it in glass mason jars. The result is a soothing cream for pet skin relief.

  1. Hi Dr Jones. My dog has an allergy to grasses and more. He gets horribly itchy hot spots. Would this formula be good to stop the itch ? He scratches so much it just doy get a chance to heal. I do use the tea tincture and bought CBD from you that I give him daily. -Debbie

    1. This article will undoubtedly provide valuable assistance, and it can be utilized to benefit your beloved pet.

  2. Dr Jones I have a feral cat who I feed and care for who has a really bad bald patch on the top back side of her body. She chews on her backside constantly. Help me help her please. She’s a little black Kitty who’s about two years old. I would like to adopt her eventually if she lets me. What do you think it may be?

    1. Here are some tips that can help:


      A very itchy, smelly, oozy area on the skin. There may be more than one spot. They often form on the face and at the base of the ears. They are often very painful.


      The technical name for a hot spot is acute moist dermatitis. They are a local area of bacterial infected hair follicles. They form most often during the warm summer months. Any scratch or wound can cause the skin to become infected and develop into a hot spot. Most hot spots are secondary to some type of skin allergy.


      REMOVE THE HAIR. This is the most important thing to do in order to allow hot spots to heal. Use a pair of blunt nosed scissors to trim as much hair as possible on and around the spot. If you have clippers use them for trimming. These can be very painful and some dogs will not let you trim much hair.

      ANTI-INFLAMMATORY. As these hot spots are painful, pain relief is needed. Aspirin (ASA) is safe for dogs, do not give to cats. The canine dose is 1/4 of a 325 mg tablet per 10 lbs of body weight. Do not give if your pet is on some type of ant-inflammatory medication for arthritis (such as Rimadyl). Once your pet is less painful, then you are better able to clean the area.

      CLEAN THE AREA. Use a mild, non-perfumed antiseptic soap (Hibitane) to clean the skin. Gently dab it on the spot, lather up and rinse well.

      A CUP OF TEA. The key to curing hot spots is to get them to dry out. A very effective antiseptic drying solution is tea and aspirin. Brew up a strong cup of black tea and dissolve an aspirin tablet in it. Soak a cloth in this brew and apply it to the area for 5 minutes four times daily.

      BUROW’S SOLUTION. This is a solution of aluminum acetate which will help dry the skin and promote healing. It is available at pharmacies. Spray it on the area three times daily.

      APPLE CIDER VINEGAR. It is antibacterial and antifungal – it can naturally treat the surface skin infection. Pour ACV in a bowl, and use gauze or a clean cloth to wipe the area well – this can be repeated 2-3 times a day.

      ANXIETY RELIEF. Lick granulomas are often the result of boredom and anxiety. Ensure that your dog is well stimulated and not left for excessive periods of time. Consider some safe anti-anxiety medication such as HomeoPet Anti-anxiety, Bach Rescue Remedy or Valerian.

      ALLERGIES AND EXTERNAL PARASITES. If the hot spots are recurring, then search for an underlying cause. Check for fleas or lice, you may want to treat for them with Advantage anyway. Stop any non-vegetable treats (Milk-Bones and table scraps) and consider a hypoallergenic food.


      WITCH HAZEL. Will make a hot spot feel better almost instantly. It evaporates quickly cooling down the inflamed skin. It can be applied two to three times a day.

      CALENDULA AND ALOE VERA. Two soothing herbs that I frequently use for any type of skin irritation. If you have one of these on hand, then use them after applying one of the treatments for drying out the hot spot (the tea and aspirin, or Burow’s Solution).

      Basic Formula for Chronic Skin Problems

      2 parts Burdock root, 1 part Dandelion, 1 part Red Clover, 1 part garlic powder
      Use the tincture (buy individual tinctures, mix together) or tea (blend herbs in a tea)
      Provide additional flaxseed oil, evening primrose oil, borage seed oil, or fish oil
      Dose: 1 tablespoon per forty pounds of your pet’s body weight daily.


      ARNICA. Give two 30C tablets daily.

      APIS MELLIFICA. The primary remedy for facial swelling, which can be seen in an acute allergic reaction. Dose 12C every 2 hours.

      URTICA URENS (URTICA). The best homeopathic for Hives and for Hot Spots. One 30C every 2 hours.

      SILICA. Dose 30C every 12 hours, given after vaccines if diarrhea is a side effect. This is an important one for both Hives and Hot Spots as it will help resolve the infection.
