Unhappy Doberpaws = Rash

I don't know if anyone else has this issue, but I hope there is a solution.

Whenever Duke's paws touches my skin, I rash up. I'm sure it has to do with the bacteria he picks up when he goes out walking, so I've tried to wash his paws more often, but it doesn't seem to help. My husband isn't as sensitive as I am, but he said that he's rashed up before after rough housing with Duke. My sister in-law has also rashed up on her forearm after playing with Duke.

Anyone else have this problem or have a solution?

I'm pretty sensitive to everything. I often get red or rashes from the dogs touching me. It seems to be certain dogs and not others. I have been allergy tested for dogs and I'm not allergic to them. It can be paws, or licking or just petting certain dogs. Normally my hands swell a tiny bit and burn. Or I'll get little bitty bumps in a small area. I just wash really good with a antibac soap, apply sanitizer and it goes away almost instantly.

How about putting boots on him when he goes outside? That will prevent him from picking up whatever you might be allergic to. If it works, then you know that IS the problem. If it doesn't, then you might need to do more sleuthing.

I am allergic to dogs, and will frequently get a rash from petting or saliva- especially if it is someone else's dog. Over time I become more immune to mine, and only have problems if I am bathing them, or spend too much time playing without washing thoroughly afterward.

I am the same way! And it seems to be with certain dogs. Dogs with super soft silky hair do not bother me at all. It seems to be the short more course haired breeds that make me break out in hives on areas that have been touched. I have the same reaction with my friends GSPs, our previous Great Dane and of course now our Dobie....all similar coat styles. I can however love on the neighbors golden with no adverse effects!

you probalbly do not have severely allergic to dogs, His pads are really abrasive and causing micro damage to your skin which allowing more exposure to what ever your issue is.
I do not think his feet are the problem just a catalyst

When I was teaching mabel down and after a long slap fight play session I'll end up with raw hands/arms etc... I do a thorough 5 minute wash down in warm water with dawn and try not to let her jump on me until it resolves and this has tended to solve the minor rash pretty fast, resist the urge to scratch too of course.
I never wash her feet, aside from her ocassional bath, but washing my affected area from her scratchy pads the way I do really helps get rid of it twice as fast.
When she made my hands raw teaching down I did have to use a deep moisture lotion too.

I have the same issue, but I notice it is worse during the winter as their paws tend to be more rough, dry, and scratchy. I know I'm not allergic to the dogs, but their paws definitely grind some kind of allergen into my skin that gives me hives every time I dremel their nails.

I also get itchy from dog paws. I have to wash my hands/forearms right after dremeling and it stop pretty quick. I always thought I was weird, nice to know so many other people are this way too!

Like others have said, I get mild hives from some dog's saliva, but it goes away quickly with soap and water. I have noticed over the years that when I dremel my dogs nails, they get all freaked out and their paw pads get sweaty (Thor especially). That causes the hives for me too, worse than the saliva.
