    Default Baby Wipes for all?

    Hello, gosh am I glad I found this site! SO much information
    But I am a little confused now on cleaning. The breeder we got Opie from told us all we will ever need to clean his wrinkles and tail pocket were baby wipes. So that's been what we have been doing. But now from reading on here it I've seen a lot of people say not to use baby wipes as they don't have a drying agent and will leave behind too much moisture...
    So far we haven't had any problems but now I am worried. And last night I discovered that Opie does actually have a very deep tail pocket and I gave it a good cleaning and got tons of hair out.
    All in all my question is: Is every bulldog so different that to one bulldog being cleaned with baby wipes is ok and to another it isn't?
    I just want to know if I need to completely stop with baby wipes and get on the witch hazel wagon, or buy something that has a quick drying agent.

    Thanks in advance for your help and input.

    My boy really doesnt need a lot of help with his wrinkles, but I met a fellow bulldog owner and he swears by Epi-Otic. I use it for my Labs wet ears and it keeps her from getting yeastie. My vet only charges $2 for 8oz.

    I was told to put it on a qtip and clean out his wrinkles 2 a week and he should be golden.

    I used baby wipes until I found witch hazel... the with hazel has the drying agent that really does make a difference in keeping the area dry and limits the moisture build up

    I like witch hazel because of the drying aspect of it. Plus a bottle of witch hazel plus cotton pads/balls is really inexpensive.

    You can use the baby wipes, but just take a paper towel and dry it afterwards or try the witch hazel, just don't use it everyday, because it will dry out the skin too much and can cause other problems.

    I've found the best way is to use colloidal silver on a cotton pad then dab dry with paper towel on wrinkles/ nose rope,also colloidal silver on tail pocket dab dry and apply gold bond powder ,it's surprising how a mucky tail pocket affects all aspects of a bulldog ,also thornit powder is good for ears/skin to eradicate ear mites as ear mites can roam all over the body

    My husband used a colloidal silver product on his feet several years ago. He got athletes foot in Viet Nam and this has been the only cure. So we used it on Charley's red tear stains several years ago and they have never come back. Now if I were just brave enough to use it in his yeasty ears! I'm not!
