    please help my shar pei has terrible skin problems, she is 1 years old and has scratched and bites herself red raw in some places and is now bald. Could she be allergic ?

    Hi Alison,

    Allergic conditions are certainly a possibility, with food or pollen being the most common causes. Ectoparasites are also a differential, particularly fleas or mites. If she is severely traumatising herself I would suggest she is seen by your vet. Sometimes the pattern of where she is biting can give a clue to the cause but they may want to perform some skin tests.

    Hope this helps,

    Jonathan
