I use Malacetic Otic solution, I put it on the round cotton make up pads and clean her wrinckles with that also it clears up tear stains but just dont get it close to the eye. This stuff kills bacteria and has cleaned up her red yeast like that on her nose. Also blow on it or let it air dry then put diaper cream on it. You can scrub a little to with that soaked pad and you will notice a difference right away!
What are you feeding him? A lot of times right food makes the world of difference with this problem too. I clean Usko's wrinkles a few times a week with colloidal silver and put Desitin after. His wrinkles suddenly got really irritated awhile ago and this mix was the thing that cured them in no time.
you have been given some really good suggestions and a list of good products to try .. all I could add is to remember to do this face folds everyday, it's so important to take daily care of those wrinkles and folds. good luck and hope you find the right combination of products for him.
I suffer from "M.B.S." (Multiple Bulldog Syndrome)
because one bulldog is NEVER enough!!
Jenna is a rescue...when i first brought her home her nose rope and tail pocket were very dirty I cleaned them often with fragrance free baby wipes but the next day they were just as bad...then I read here about the reddish color being a sign of yeast...so i started doing both with witch hazel and then putting destin on...seems to have worked for her...i clean her now every few days...still a little dirty but no red and no where near as bad

There is a part of your heart not alive until a bulldog has entered your life.

Thank you for all the love, fun and teachings
hey guys, I've been trying to decide between trizCHLOR 4 wipes and Duoxo, what's the difference? Also are they safe to use in the wrinkles closest to the eyes? Charlotte's nose are stays okay but her eyewrinkles are the one's that tend to get a little irritated.
Thanks love you all for your advice

That does look quite sore!! I would give the witch hazel a try and try not to rub too hard because from the pics it really looks irritated.
Molly and Yuna both have deep nose ropes. If I get the black gunk in it I use malecetic otic to clean it, then malectic ultra to treat it. After it dries out I put a bit of panalog ointment in it and whalla, it is usually all better by the next day. Repeat if needed, but if it's 80% or better then I just the the malacetic otic, witch hazel, or ACV to maintain. Using just baby wipes or a wet cloth only feed the bacteria or fungus.
You can get the two malacetic products on amazon but panalog is rx from your vet.

@Taylor I use them on Gio's wrinkles that are right under his eyes, they don't bother him I just try to be gentle when I'm cleaning close to his eyes. He doesn't mind them and the smell isn't to strong. He especially loves when I clean his tail pocket! But I definitely recommend them! I think the wipes are similar, as long as they have a drying agent in them. I just chose the trizchlor because my vet recommended them.
