The humaworm cream still seems to be working. I wait until I see her start to bite or scratch somewhere. As soon as she does once, I put more of the cream on her -- 2 or 3 times a day. I just ordered another jar so that I don't run out of it. I'm really happy that she has found relief now. Plus, I can finally pet her and rub her back without making her itch more. I tried to avoid touching her, except for her face/head, because I felt bad about making her back twinge every time I did. I am definitely making sure I ALWAYS have the humaworm cream on hand from now on. I hope he never stops making it now that I see how good it is for my dog's skin.
You made me laugh with the butt shaving/anal gland thing. That reminids me of something funny Haley has been doing since the itching starts. When she is sitting and her body is turned around biting her leg/side/back, she then gets up and sniffs the floor where her butt was!! I have a gross dog! Luckily between the groomer doing it and having the vet do it each time we're there (unfortunately Haley has more issues with this than my last dog did), I haven't had to learn or try to express the glands. I give her a dried apricot each day, because I read a comment in the Whole Dog Journal that somebody said it was good for these issues. Haley thinks it's a great treat, too.
