    First rule out pin worms your veterinarian can do a scotch tape prep to rule them out. I really like a 50:50 mix of listerene and baby oil sprayed daily on the dock top and bottom. Also wash weekly and moisturize well.

    To those suggesting worms, as I already stated, he has been checked and it is not worms.

    Oops forgot to say in my OP that sheath has been cleaned so it is not that.

    My 3 year old had a negative fecal exam but I dewormed him anyway, since I couldn't continue to watch him rub his tail raw. Same day I cleaned his sheath, washed his tail & then applied Colloidal Silver Wound Spray to his dock for 3 days. That was 5 weeks ago and he hasn't rubbed since. *knock on wood*

    Use a baby wipe to wash around his butt area. Sometimes they try to itch their tails to itch their butt. Other ppl have suggested mtg but it smells and if you don't get it rinsed all the way I think it actually makes it worse.

    It's not supposed to be rinsed.

    Personally I don't mind the smell. More the greasy fingers lol. I know some people hate the smell..it's weird. Not bad just like BBQ or something haha.
