    Hi there, just looking for some advice maybe someone can relate to my poor french Bulldogs problem, since I have owned her (2 years now) every now and then her scratching flares up, she does the usual biting and licking paws, scratching her body scratching her ears, her ears get that bad she scratches that much she cuts her skin. She has been the vets and she currently is on apoquel but I am seeing no improvement.can anybody reccomend any soothing creams or shampoos, thanks

    Has the vet identified the cause of the itching?
