Eczema in 2 year old GSD: Any permanent solutions ?
My 2 year old GSD keeps getting red patches (they look like eczema) on the whole of his abdominal side and even on the ventral side of his hind legs.
We've tried Animax ointment and antibiotics before which seem to address the problems for the time being; but the patches keep getting back.
Have any of you experienced this before and found a permanent cure ?
I'm really worried and any feedback will be appreciated !

Time to think of mites of some sort .
Try a good sulfur soap and give a good lather . May need to be repeated .

antibiotics won't do much except guard against secondary skin infections from scratching -- but so will Usnea .
MCT (a form of coconut oil) herbal essential oils, feeding well for a prime immune system , which will include probiotics which the antibiotics have disregulated.
An antimicrobial shampoo -- Mane n Tale Protect takes care of bacteria, fungus.
This is your Animax which people will recognize as Panalog , which at one time was the go-to for ear problems . Animax Ointment or Cream: Antibiotic For Cats & Dogs - 1800PetMeds
Zymox is much more effective .

Agree with Carmen.
Possibly a higher quality Grain Free Kibble. Or raw feeding, which you can even purchase commercially made such as NorthWest Naturals: NW Naturals Store Locator: Store Locator

If this is truly eczema, healing comes from within the gut. There are probiotics are are specific for eczema. Healing the gut will help heal the skin.
However, I think I would ask for a skin scraping for mites as well.
