Puppy dandruff and rashes

Am sorry if this is not the correct section for this Q guys but I couldn't find another one 😅 So the thing is my pup always seemed to be prone to rashes/( or is dandruff..?) and when he came to us he was scratching like crazy but that turned out to be cause of ticks n the scratching is almost non existent now... But he had these bumps and sores visibly on his elbows (pic attached) and the breeder recommended Turmeric with Kohoba oil and it worked amazingly But he still has like dandruff in some places like under the tail, arms, armpits and hair seems thin around there too.. its getting very tiring applying tht ointment...
Can some1 plz suggest smthin fr this..? I feel really sorry for the pup its most likely due to the climate its supeeeer hot these days but there's nothing we cn do abt it... 😞
Also he turns 4mos on Fri thas him now 😄

First of all, what are you feeding?

Hans had dandruff as a puppy, and the vet recommended evening primrose oil. It worked quite well, and can’t hurt anything.

Salmon oil is also really good for skin and coat health.My husband's little dog had skin and fur issues when he first adopted her.After two weeks of adding the oil to her food there was a definite improvement.After two months her skin was clear and her fur was shiny.

He has milk/kibble in the morning then his 1st rice which has meat items like chicken breast, fish, eggs, liver etc.. Depending on the day and veggies like pumpkin, carrot, potato (again a mixture depending on thr day) thn a yoghurt in the evening n 2nd rice at night... The ointment works well fr him but there's jzt no end to this dandruff... 😞

I have bathed my male twice in the 6 months I have owned him. There skin is very sensitive and can get very dry/itchy. The less you bath the better, only bath them if they are dirty. I also recommend the salmon oil. I have been giving it to both my puppies since day one, they both were very dry and itchy when we got them and they both have nice healthy coats/skin now. I just add it to there breakfast.

He is cute is there anything he may lying that may be irritating such as fertilized grass. Salmon oil, coconut oil will help and skin dryness.

Thx guys I will look into the salmon oil and coconut oil 🙂 Also the Vet recommended using an Anti dandruff shampoo when bathing him which i haven't used yet but is tht Ok?
As for his hygiene @Jenny720 he's a very naughty pup rolls in mud, plays in the rain, etc etc 🤢 We try to clean him as much as possible and he's brushed daily but with the weather n all its all prolly affecting his skin... 🙄

A dirty pup is a pup that is having fun lol! If gets worse and no better- severely itchy skin and loosing weight and hair loss in that area can be a sign of sarcoptic mange- that would be worse care scenario but be cleared up fairly quickly most often skin scrapings are negative. . Cytovet is a great shampoo you can for troubled skin. I had used phytovet c and you can get often at your vet’s office. Not sure for use in pups just check. Really good stuff. Wondercide has nice gentle natural shampoo bars also.

His meals may not be properly balanced. Puppies do not regulate certain nutrients as effectively as adult dogs so imbalances are noticeable sooner. Rice and potatoes are starchy nutrient poor fillers and pumpkin and carrot tend to be high in sugar. If you want to feed fruits and veggies then choose green leafy veggies like kale, spinach, chard, asparagus, broccoli, cucumber, zucchini, ect.... If you are going to feed a home cooked/prepped meal you need to make sure it is properly balanced especially with a puppy because they are still growing so an imbalanced diet can cause more issues than with an adult.

If all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail.
