    Default Nose fold growths -- please, help!

    My bully, Ruckus, is a happy, 11 month old. Tonight, when I was cleaning his face, I noticed a cluster of 3 wet pinkish growths on the side of his nose in his skin flap. They aren't visible unless you move his nose fold. I've attached pictures. Has anyone seen anything like this? I'm thinking a trip to the vet is in order.

    I can't really see from the pics what it is, but like you said, maybe a trip to the vets to check it out.

    They look similar to interdigital cysts. Due to the location I would definitely get it checked out.

    If I had to guess..I would say some kind of fungal growth. The area is always wet & moist so I'm sure it doesn't take much for something to start there.

    Hi, I agree a vet visit would be a good idea, to find out what it is. It looks like it could be cysts, or some kind of fungal infection. A vet would be better able to diagnose it. I hope it's nothing serious. Please keep us posted on what the vet says.

    I wonder if they are just small pimple like cysts? Good luck! Let us know the outcome!

    So, I scheduled an appointment with the vet, but then it seemed like the growths were shrinking a bit. The vet said it could just be irritation and if it keeps shrinking to just keep cleaning it at night and keep an eye on it everyday. I'm hoping it will be gone soon, but it I see it get any worse, off to the vet we go.

    That's good if they shrunk, every once in awhile Buster will get a pimple here or there. I hope they go away all together and Ruckus will be blemish free, he's a good looking boy!
