Nylon Allergies in Dogs

Dogs often react to Nylon, which is what many dog collars are made of.

Symptoms of Nylon Allergies in Dogs

Skin reactions that are not centered on the contact area are generally concentrated around the face and groin as well as under the front legs and between the toes. Frequent contact vectors can include collars, clothing, and carpet.

  • Bald patches

  • Blister-like lesions

  • Chronic ear infections

  • Chronically inflamed feet

  • Face rubbing

  • Head shaking

  • Hives

  • Obsessive licking

  • Paw biting

  • Skin infections

  • Skin rashes

  • Ulcerations on skin

Causes of Nylon Allergies in Dogs

Contact allergies are brought about in the canine body by the aggressive response of specialized immune cells to the allergen. These specialized cells are named mast cells, and it’s their job to protect the body from pathogens. When the immune system is activated by a particular allergen, in this case, nylon, it manufactures a protein that causes the mast cells to release a naturally occurring compound called histamine. Histamine has an inflammatory effect on the tissues it comes into contact with, which can result in the itchy and inflamed skin conditions characteristic of an allergic reaction in canines

Treatment of Nylon Allergies in Dogs

Salves and shampoos made with hydrocortisone will generally relieve the skin discomfort, although it is important to ensure that your pet does not lick the preparation off of themselves as it can be somewhat toxic itself.

Natural Options

The steroids can have secondary side effects, so I would suggest some Natural options first.

  1. Treat like a Hot Spot: 1 cup of strong black/green tea, dissolve a regular strength Aspirin. Wipe affected area 4 times/day for 5-7 days

  2. Topically decrease inflammation. 1 tablespoon of coconut oil mixed with 2ml of Licorice Root tincture. Apply twice daily 7-14 days

  3. Oral anti-inflammatory. Licorice Root tincture orally- 1/2ml per 20lbs of body weight twice daily for 14 days

  4. Get rid of the Nylon Collar, and get your dog leather: dogs generally do not react to leather

P.S. This is a thing, as dog prone to Allergies are more likely to react to synthetic fabrics (ie Nylon).

 Obviously best to avoid in the first place.
