    Go to shoppers and get monistat cream, the infection is a yeast infection likely and it requires miconazole to clear it up. My shepherd has the same issue and this is what works.

    Depends on the strain of yeast . Most common is Candida but it can also be Malassezia, which can also spread to patches on the body, esp. armpits and belly around the dink area. Ketaconazole cream kills Malassezia, as does Pyrithione zinc, the ingredient in Head and Shoulders Shampoo. I've used H&S foam on a facial scrubbie with great success when my Lab Black Pig Dog gets the gut and dink area rash in the summer from swamp muck wallowing like a market hog. He's constantly damp all summer and the rash flares during the hot humid weather. Tried to convince my buddy to wash his junk in H&S after seeing him digging at his sac and balls while talking to women at a family BBQ. I told the dude "that ain't right brother" and he just told me I was being silly.

    I agree with the yeast infection and switching the food is important to the cure. My Lab was having issues and we switched to Natural Balance Sweet Potatoe and Venison kibble . Keeping their ears clean is important and especially after they have been in the water.
    Good Luck & Good Hunting !

    I imagine it’s not very common for a dog to have an actual “allergy” to a certain food (even though the vet may use that word) as it pertains to yeast. More likely the carb/protein/fat ratios in the diet may aggravate the situation by providing fuel (food) for the yeast to flourish.
    A carb reduction will apparently reduce the available fuel for Candida but does nothing for Mallessezia. Protein and fat is what fuels it. Probably best to know what yeast species you’re dealing with before trying to adjust diet.
