Also, according to my vet, it takes up to three months for a severe allergic reaction to clear the system, so I'm not surprised that 10 days didn't have much effect. I do strongly suggest getting your vet involved with this though, they're going to be the only ones who know for sure what's going on.
Though the allergy testing was expensive, for me it was worth it, if only so my dog healed faster. Good luck, I hope your pooch is feeling better soon.
Post number 29 explains my recent vet visit from Monday
I figured out she had a flea allergy and all that tearing herself up she was doing was due to three measly fleas because our flea preventative (Frontline) was not working like it was supposed to so we switched to Vectra.
UPDATE: After applying the Vectra and giving her the Prednisone I can happily say my dog is ITCH FREE! She has not scratched, chewed, bit, rubbed muzzle, or anything! She can relax, she's so happy, and I am a happy dog mama. We shall see as time goes on how everything pans out but so far good signs.
