Shabba hasn't developed anymore as yet, the vet told us it's nothing to worry about - it's just a little uncomfortable for them when it develops.

If I were in your situation, I wouldn't want to keep my dog on steroids purely in case of one of these things pops up again.

The vet said that it can be caused simply by pressure building when they shake their heads etc, so i'm not sure that steroids would be effective in all cases anyway.

If you're worried about him itching, how about putting a sausage collar on him for now?
