fur balls and other horrors
I have very bad eczema which becomes worse every season - my wife insists on allowing our dog to sleep in the bed with us. THe dog shares aour sheets and pillows and sheds lots of hair as she is a long haired breed. Can this be healthy for my skin condition. The eczema marks look more like ringworm formations and are course to the touch and unpleasant to look at. Is it healthy generally to share beds with dogs who scratch around in sand and garden and pick up germs from other dogs they play with.
please advise......!
