Resisoothe: Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I use ResiSOOTHE™ if my dog is itchy?

The oatmeal particles assist in maintaining the skin moisture level by keeping existing moisture in and drawing further moisture to the skin surface. The particles also attract and dislodge dirt particles from superficial and deeper parts of the skin. Moist, clean skin is less likely to be irritated and itchy. Oatmeal itself, through some of its components, also has a direct effect on the skin.

Can ResiSOOTHE™ be used on localised pruritis such as the under belly?

ResiSOOTHE™ can be dispensed for localised conditions by direct application. If a shampoo is utilised we recommend the use of Epi-Soothe S Shampoo (2% oatmeal with Spherulites) or Allergroom S hypo-allergenic shampoo. The decision for use will depend on the diagnosis.

Where does ResiSOOTHE™ fit in relation with Epi-Soothe S Shampoo and Epi-Soothe Rinse and Conditioner?

When an itchy pet initially presents, Epi-Soothe S Shampoo (2% oatmeal with Spherulites) is perfect to clean the skin and coat of allergens and dirt. The Epi-Soothe Conditioner is 20% oatmeal. It does not lather or wash, it simply treats the skin. The conditioner provides the highest rate of oatmeal available. ResiSOOTHE™ can be used mid-week in between the shampoo and conditioner to top up the oatmeal level which will continue the benefits achieved by usage of oatmeal.

In summary, the severity of the condition will determine what level of oatmeal is required:

  • Mild to moderate or localised conditions: Periodic applications of oatmeal to specific areas
  • Severe or generalised conditions: Oatmeal shampoo to cleanse the skin and periodic applications of oatmeal
  • Chronic conditions: High levels of oatmeal to soothe irritated skin – shampoo, conditioner and lotion
