    Default Weird Skin Problem

    Hi All,

    I'm brand new to this site and am glad I found it! I noticed yesterday that my 'lil buddy had some red splotches on his upper lip. This morning I noticed he had a couple more. I emailed the vet with photos asking what it might be as the vet is located an hour from me. He thinks (simply based on the photos) that it's mild acne and to try peroxide.

    I appreciate any input those of you might have. He's my first bullie but he's 4 years old so I'm not surprised by any skin irritations at this point. Red bumps, ugly and slightly raised but doesn't seem to bother him.

    Thanks,
    Meghan & Seamus

    Yes..me too! Jake had that a couple times! I use Maloket wipes..you can get from amazon. Now..a lot of people use stridesx pads..get the ones with aloe! I tried them and felt they were too harsh. Do you use stainless bowls?? Jakes cleared up and I'm not sure if it was allergy related in his case. We figured out he was sensitive to chicken and changed his food too.


    By the way so glad you've joined in! Ask anything you need help with and we'd love an intro post in introductions..with pictures!!

    Sorry, I don't have any experience with bully acne but just wanted to say Seamus is such a cutie. Is that a monkey he's resting his chin on? Adorable

    I just went through this with Elli! She's a messy drinker... We ended up sticking to cleaning her face after mealtime and drinks with a cloth and nightly I clean her with baby wipes. It cleared up after a couple days. I thought about stridex pads but I was allergic to the strong medicine and I wouldn't want to make things worst for Elli.

    Btw welcome! He's just too cute!!!

    Hi and welcome. We had bully acne too, until we started getting trained to wipe the bully face after every meal and water slurp.

    Wow...is that what bullie acne looks like? I've never seen such a thing.

    Looks like Bea's tummy hives - only much smaller. Regardless, feeding in a stainless steel bowl, washed in hot soapy (Dawn Antibacterial is what I use) water and air dried after each meal will go a long way toward helping whatever this is. My kids have a ceramic water bowl but it too is rinsed and refilled frequently and washed in hot soapy water daily. I dry it with paper towels - so no fabric softener can "rub off" on it as they have an issue with that too.

    Bea's acne looks like her mama's pre-menopausal acne. heh heh Bumps on the bottom of her chin and I use Stridex on those when they rarely appear. Very rarely. I think the clean dishes resolve in most cases.

    Welcome!
