Seborrhea- Advise please...

1797 4
So i self diagnosed my little longhaired Chihuahua with Seborrhea (my ex vet tech sister confirms thats most likely what it is).
I would like to know if any of you have dealt with this? What you had to do to get rid of it? How long it took, etc?
I am using a vet shampoo for Seborrhea and its helping but i was wondering how long it takes to dissapear. I have bathed her three times in it in the last week.

Thanks in advance for any advise! I always like asking your guys advise since your all very knowledgable!

Should i maybe switch her back to raw....shes been off it for maybe a month now...i believe the seborrhea was flea allergy induced so i did frontline on her a few days before her bath.

Thanks Arreau....yeah its so strange. Im now starting to think its could be because she might be hypo thyroid. I think a vet visit is in order. I dont like to see her being miserable and constantly wearing coats to prevent her from itching and licking herself. Poor thing! Ill keep ya posted though!

What kind of food is she getting? I would assume a good quality one, but we have cut out gluten (or nearly, when she doesn't steal scraps from my kids), and my dog's dermatitis has gotten much better. Between medicated shampoos, I have my groomer use an oatmeal shampoo for her also.
