Default Dry Skin

I know there are posts on this, I read them, but they didn't quite line up... Pagne is quilling (I took a picture of a Quill coming in) and I gave him an oatmeal bath, specifically with Aveeno Baby Soothing Relief Creamy Wash, with natural colloidal oatmeal. That was a few days ago, today, I took him out and after I stroked his quills and noticed his feet covered in poop, went to get a foot bath for him. When putting him in the bath (literally a sopping wet towel in a bucket, water didn't even cover his toes) I saw dandruffy flakes on my t-shirt. I washed his feet, popped him into a towel for drying and chastised him as I cleaned his filthy wheel, picked him back up to see how clean and dry he was and got a good look at his skin. I saw a dry patch, no irritation.

Did the oatmeal bath cause this? Can't imagine what else..

Any suggestions on how to correct this?

When using the aveeno did you do a rinse wash afterwards to get the wash off? May have been residue soap causing the flakes perhaps?

I don't think so, only because I have professional grooming training and I know when ever you think you have the soap out, you keep rinsing just to be on the safe side.

That being said, this is with dogs and cats... And other actual furred creatures and not quills.

Would a second bath help? Maybe just some lotion or another rinse?

Quilling can cause some dry skin. I wouldn't give her another bath so soon. I would just watch her and see if it gets any worse. Is she scratching at all?

Nope, no scratching and it seems to have cleared up on its own. 😁
