Every bulldog owner should ask their vet for some Panalog ointment. It is available by prescription only. This stuff works wonders on many things, but particularly great for sore / swollen nose ropes and wrinkles. Kills that rotten reddish brown gunk and promotes fast healing.
I always clean the area first with Malacetic Otic to remove any access gunk or build up. Then apply ointment in affected area.
I have also treated sores and minor ear problems with panalog.
