OK so we solved the mystery of the itchiness on Chase. He has yeast on the tip of his ear and on his underarm/elbow area. He's on Fluconizole 100mg once daily for 30 days and medicated wipes.

Anything else I can do for him to help rid him of yeast and/or prevent it from coming back?

Can humans catch yeast from dogs?

Lacey.. I am just learning on the yeast issue and my golden has had it for awhile and just realizing this. I do not think it is contagious *****, but I wash my hands when i clean her private area where she has it. I also use a Zymox spray there. The main culprit I am learning could be their diet and trying to figure out what would be a balanced diet to make for her. Yeast can be formed within , by too much sugar..which comes from carbs. Grain free diet as a tip and though raw diets are recommended, Lib throws this up as soon as she eats it, so I am doin my research to see what would do her better.

My GSD had the same problem. He had sores on his belly, underarms and ear infections. I tried medication, but it always came back. Then someone suggested Purina Pro Plan for Sensitive Skin and Stomach, it cleared everything up and he never had any more issues. This was after trying several other foods, grain free included.

Think I'm going to take our old female GSD in and see if this is her problem. When she got her bath tonight her ears were smelling a bit yeasty and they're very dry inside. She's been scratching at them for a week so I'm afraid it's a yeast infection. She's got some areas on her body that have the same scaley / dry skin too. Ugh. Poor baby. They gave me special medicated shampoo and a leave on creme for her a couple days ago when I mentioned the itching and dry skin. If she doesn't feel better by Monday I'll run her in and see if that's her problem.

My beagle mutt had a yeast infection in his ear and is on the mend. It looked like your standard ear infection and stunk like hot garbage. Apparently it's fairly common in floppy eared dogs.

Antibiotics and some ear drops from the vet did the trick. Keeping their ears clean and dry is the best prevention and it's not contagious to humans. You should still definitely wash your hands and everything they were touching since it's a pretty unsanitary ailment.

My DH struggled with our Lhasa's yeast problem, never correctly diagnosed until he finally took her to a veterinary dermatologist. Within two minutes, he diagnosed, and after the treatment -- I forget the medication name, he suggested we bathe her with Nizoral. It's available in your pharmacy's shampoo section, off the shelf in most states. OTC in some.

Good luck!
