Not right now. You have to be careful with how much you "throw" at him all at once. If he has complications or reacts badly to something, you won't know what is causing the problem.

Let the oatmeal and Advantage work first and see how it goes. :wink:

I also recall from immunology class that flea allergies usually come in a pattern as well (variable, gut generally similar)...

Fles allergy dermatitis: copy - pasted from the 2006 WSAVA congress:
1. Pruritus (itchiness) predominantly localized to the caudal one-half of the dog.
2. Characteristic distribution pattern--partially bilaterally symmetric pattern, involve the dorsal lumbosacral (back) region, tail-base, perineum (butt region!), medial (inside), caudal (outside) thighs.
3. Crusted papules (pimples) in the umbilical fold--(especially in male dogs), an under-appreciated clinical marker for flea allergy dermatitis.
4. Lesions--crusted papules, secondary lesions associated with chronicity.
5. Fibropruritic nodules--highly characteristic clinical marker of flea allergy dermatitis in susceptible dogs.
