    Yep... Banks get 2 25mg pills with breakfast and again with dinner. Never phased her or Nitschke. Start with 25mg 2x a day and see how she does with it

    It may even be worthwhile getting a blood test for allergies done at the vets ... it's starting to warm up so maybe there are seasonal allergies in there too. OR there could still be something in the beef frittata that she is allergic to.

    Those who have done the blood test @cowsmom and @KMARINO to mention just a couple have posted on here that their only regret is not getting it done sooner!!

    First of all, I want to congratulate you on the BEST documentation I've seen in a long time for a skin problem. That photo of the crusties? Wow. I am really impressed and I'm not being funny either. I really am! THANK YOU. It's easier for the experts around here to help when they can see the problem. I am afraid though, that I am not one of them --- yet --- on this issue. Currently, I'm just battling tear stains - in one eye only on each dog - so maybe it's just winter? Crap. I don't know. But it does drive me NUTS. I wipe daily with a hypoallergenic baby wipe (soft Huggies ones) and use Desitin (baby butt creme) if anything looks red/sore (even if it's really not sore). I am hoping that a future switch in food is going to help.

    Awesome that Fromm is working so well for your baby!

    I was under the impression that red tear stains was a form of red yeast? Not 100% on that, the vet has the final say.

    FWIW, I clean Dozer's wrinkles every day with Hypo-allergenic grooming wipes and then dry them off with a wash cloth. Then about twice a week I use an Oxy Acne pad from Walgreens to kill the bacteria in them and then use witch hazel and then dry them off with a wash cloth. It seems to be working...goodluck!

    I have had a problem with Max's wrinkles for a long time. I've medicated him with Benedryl, changed his diet, had Allergy testing done (He is not allergic to anything or any foods) used diaper rash ointment and still have problem wrinkles. I initially used Baby wipes, which are OK, but the wipe that actually HEALED his red, irritated, raw wrinkles was TrizChlor 4 pads. These actually healed the open red, raw skin. I use them daily. I found that his wrinkles can go from good to really bad in less than 24-hrs. So, If I am not on top of it, his wrinkles will get bad again.

    What works great anytime he's gotten red or raw wrinkles, is a slathering of antifungal cream. I actually had a conversation with a pharmacist once because I had monistat in my hand and she advised I go with an antifungal cream that people use for Athlete's foot - the one I have been using with good success is Walgreens brand Clotrimazole, a lot cheaper than Monsitat and within a few days, all redness, soreness is gone. I just slather some into the wrinkle and rub it in. The fact that Mr. D lets me do this easily makes me think it feels good and makes him not sore as well.

    On a side note, I had a bad cold once, and my nose was all raw and scaley underneath from blowing it. Vaseline, skin creams, etc were doing nothing. I decided to use some of this cream under my nose, and the icky skin that had been there for weeks cleared up in 2 DAYS!! This is why I haven't ever used diaper cream on him because I don't think it has anything in it for yeast, which is what is making your baby sore.

    Good luck!

    Editing just to say my vet does not recommend creams for folds. Says to keep very dry and only use malaket wipes and antifungal powder.

    I use Gold Bond powder also when they get nasty. There are other times that they completely clear up on there own.
    My Bozzy's wrinkles will be absolutely disgusting one week and then completely clear the next.
    We don't change their food or anything. I'm not sure if the time of year has something to do with it or what.
    Anyone else have this happen?

    Yes! Last summer this happened to Mr. D out of the blue. I am thinking maybe because it was so hot out - took a while to get rid of the stains since he is white - argh, was that aggravating. I hope it doesn't happen this summer. I also tried blow drying him on cool setting once and he hated it so much - I hate how people say make sure the wrinkles are dry - sometimes they just don't get dry no matter how much you wipe after a bath, which is why I will use cornstarch once I think I can't get them any drier but they still seem damp.

    ETA: Cornstarch is not recommended either - antifungal powder is better!
