It's been a hot summer in Texas and I'm itching and chewing like mad. I used to have a beautiful tail and flank hair. Now I look raggedy. So do two of my other beardie friends.

Any good remedies besides Benadryl?

My beardie is also itching. We live in Las Vegas where there are no fleas. I assume dry skin is the problem. Don't have a remedy but have you tried Benadryl? What is the dosage?

I think my vet said the Benadryl dose would be one tablet for every 20lbs. Once a day.

not sure if you'll get this or if your problem has been resolved, but we found that food allergies are a big cause of behavior like this. we switched to a no corn Raw diet and had the problems vanish with no medication.
