    Question Irritation on Bert's facial folds

    I just noticed that the folds on Bert's face are becoming redder. We asked the vet about it but she was unable to give a prescription drug for it. Its not noticeable when near but when you look at him from afar, you will see two red lines. We give him a bath 2x a week and wash his face with a warm towel atleast 2x a day. The irritation seems painful because he will try tonbite if we clean it during a bath or a sponge bath. Any cream you know that could help? I saw on some posts that it yeast infection but bert's folds doesnt have any foul smell at all. Its just really red and looks like there is less hair.

    Could it be to many baths? Or maybe the shampoo you are using? I clean Rambo with the tucks they have witch hazel in them. I got the knock off brand for 3 bucks I use them on his tail to. Someone here turned me on to them and they work great.

    Ace's got that way too and still will if I don't manage it closely. I have always cleaned every day but it seems sometimes it can spring up overnight. One vet told me just to use peroxide when it gets to the point where it is nearly raw. I think it gets worse during the seasons that are bad with enviromental allergies. So on occasions when it gets raw I will put some peroxide on a cotton ball or paper towel and wipe it out and then another clean dry paper towel to dry it really well. When its fine I just use a damp cloth or paper towel and wipe with a clean dry one. Also I have used bag balm after I clean and dry and sometimes desitin. One of the vets prescribed some prednisone when I mentioned the redness and even the wrinkles on his forehead looked red in color. The vet said it was allergies and gave the prednisone and in a couple of days it was clear but I would prefer not to use it unless necessary.

    Is there a reason why you bathe him twice a week? You can be cleaning him too much. Desitin is also good for raw skin, but not every day.

    Wowza that's a whole lot of baths and face washing ... does he get dirty playing outside or something? I give a weekly bath and daily face washing for my two, and use the Witch Hazel Pads for the daily face cleaning, it keeps their folds clean and dry.

    In my opinion weekly baths are still a whole lot. My boys get washed 2-3 times a year. Their wrinkles are wiped 2-3 times a week. Last time they both were bathed was at the start of december last year and Usko got an extra bath cause the silly boy rubbed himself against a dirty car. They're both silky smooth and don't smell at all. Luckily they don't like rolling in the mud.

    I wish Harlea didn't like to play in the mud. If there is mud or a puddle of water around she is going to roll around and play in it. Lol
