Bye bye to redness and itch (on my paws)

Why are my paws red and itchy? Why can’t the humans allow me to chew them?
Red paw

Don’t they know the redness and itch on my paws is an extremely frustrating experience?

The humans (vet included) said mine is a bacterial infection and the story goes to find a ‘cure’ to my frustrating experience because by this time, my paws look terrible.

Mom (god bless her) tried everything she can think of (including advice from her friends).
She went to the pet shop and bought medicated shampoo and some soothing balm. That helped a little but I was allergic to the particular brand of medicated shampoo so that didn’t help much.

Someone suggested calamine lotion. This was a wee drying to my skin so it was alternated by rubbing hydrocortisone cream and aloe Vera. aloe vera

Some of my friends (whom I shall not name) have Neem oil added to their shampoo. YES my experience with the Neem oil begins (Ohhhhh, let me tell you that Neem oil smells Soooooooooo bad).
Neem oil

To boost me up internally, I am given royal jelly and flaxseed oil too.

Two months back, my skin condition got from bad to worse so the vet had a visit from me. After consultation, we came home with the following – mild shampoo, chlorhexidine
which is an antiseptic solution chlornexidine

and steroid tablets steroid

Mom didn’t like the idea of the steroid tablets and strict instruction was given to Auntie Sam “give Scuba the tablet for today and tomorrow, then stop". She said steroids are often given to stop the itch without really addressing the underlying cause and the itching will return. Worst, long term use of steroids can result in many health problems.

Do you think all of them work? NO (maybe I didn’t complete the tablets)

By this time, my mom is pulling her hair out trying desperately to find something to ease my itch and redness.

Finally she discovered something when she was in China and voila after application of her discovery, I am not chewing that much and my redness is disappearing.

Mom came up with this brilliant idea - Chinese tea. She said something triggers the idea and ever since then, Auntie Sam has been making tea for my paws.

Where did she buy the tea? Well, she was in Shanghai last week and she bought back her ‘Tea Pawfect Concoction’. The pawfect concotion is made up of green and osmanthus oolong tea. chinese tea
Mom said with its potent antibacterial qualities, green and oolong have some unique powers in dealing with a range of common skin complaints. These include relieving the swelling and itchiness to the treatment of more prolonged skin conditions such as Eczema. Not surprisingly, many scientists, are slowly unveiling just how beneficial the green tea can be on this unpleasant skin disorder.
Thanks to my tea cleansing and regular brushing, I have said goodbye to red itchy paws
Par red paws
No red paws

no more red paw

Thank goodness my mom didn’t brush it aside and assume this chewing business is behavioral.

Well I hope whoever is suffering out there, can now have something new and natural to try.

Peanut said...

Your mum is very smart to figure out tea would help you.

Sparky said...

Wow, that's a lot of stuff that doesn't work! I'm glad you finally found something that DOES work. Your paws look much better.


Huskee Boy said...

Hi Scubs,
Can you spare some of the magic medication with me? I got a paw-chewing problem too and the vet also said it's bacterial infection and gave me steroids but it isn't solving the problem. Helllpppp

Marvin The Dog said...

I am so sorry not to have been visiting your blog Scuba, just been a very busy time here in Scotland.

Also sorry to hear about your skin troubles.

Apparently Green Tea is good for lots of things, so I hope your version helps you very soon.

Kind licks, and healing licks, Marvin xxxxxxx

Scuba the Muscle Boy said...

Dear Oscar - actually I prefer to taste it then have my paws clean with it. What a waste of tea.

Dear Peanut - Glad I have a smart mom.

Dear Sparky - I was told it is natural and holistic (whatever that means)

Dear Huskee - your wish has come true. Your godma (aka my mom) has given some tea to your mummy

Dear Marvin - Thanks for the healing licks. Feel better already

Frankie & Wynn said...

Hi Scuba, we are very happy for you! Frankie is having a problem with his yeast infection now. Till today, it is not cured totally yet. *Sighz... Mummy is pulling hair too!*

Can advise where to get such amazing tea leaves in Singapore? Many thanks!

Butchy & Snickers said...

Oh Scuba,
That is fabulous that something finally worked for you. Your paws look so pretty again. Green Tea is a very good antioxidant. We wonder since the tea worked so well if you are allergic to something that causes the itching. Could you be allergic to fleas? One bite can cause you lots of trouble. If your paws start to get bad again, you could try seeing if changing your food works. You could also have a food allergy.
Hope you have a great week!
Luv & Wirey Hugs!

Morgan in Pittsburgh said...

Hi Scuba, can u tell me how to make that tea stuff? Joe my favorite mailman has a bull terrier with the itchy stuff. We want to tell him how its done so we can make his dog happy like you' Morgan

Eirik said...

But how did you apply it? Did you eat it or what? :P The reason I'm asking is because me and my dog wants to try it too, he's got red paws and a red belly, and nothing really makes it better...
Thanks for the help! :)

hi there, so you soaked Scuba's paws in the tea for this treatment? or just pad it in with a cloth or something?
