    Nature's Aid is an all purpose skin gel that is from CANADA, and I'm not aware that it is available in the USA.

    We've been on the new food for 5-6 weeks and she is doing amazing, best reaction to food she's ever had in 2 years.
    I watched Cooper last weekend and my daughter gave me instructions for him lol... His wrinkles look exactly like your bullies. She cleans them at night with a gauze pads and witch hazel. His eyes don't tear much at night so in the morning she covers the red with desitin. It cleared up by the next day. She does this daily and may skip a day here and there. But desitin did the job! I will see if i have a pic of Cooper on my computer and I will ask my daughter to send me one of his red raw wrinkles.

    @GRACIE11...Those are excellent examples of red raw irritated wrinkles. BabyGirl has had a minor version of that redness in the past. I usually wash them gently and dry and then put Zymox topical ointment (purchased online) but if Desitin gives you good results I'll try that next time. I love that both Gracie and Cooper love to smoosh their faces on the couch.

    I skimmed through so I'm not sure if anyone posted this already - as for the tear stains, check for beets as an ingredient in your dog's food. Also, switching to filtered water helps - unless your dog's eyes are tearing excessively. Then the issue might not be the tear stains themselves, but finding out why the eyes are tearing so much.

    As for problems areas that are NOT near the eyes: our vet recommends a SMALL amount of peroxide. I use this specifically for Oliver's nose rope which (thankfully) is the only area we now have problems with. I put a small amount of peroxide on a cotton ball, clean the fold and then go back and gently dry it with a clean cloth.

    Oliver had terrible tear stains and as soon as we switched to giving him filtered water only, they cleared up. (this was recommended by our breeder, whom we trust 1000000%)

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.

    Every Vet seems to be different and take a totally different approach to this problem. My vet gives creams and ointments, plus powders. So with all of the suggestions here, I'm totally confused as to what will work - since I've tried everything listed and still have a problem, plus I've had Maximus allergy tested
    and he's on NVI food. I think I am going to go with the witch hazel + antifungal powders.

    Abby gets yeasty in her face folds sometimes too. 1/2 cup water, 1/2 cup raw apple cider vinegar. Dab that on with a cotton ball. Dry with a tissue or another cotton ball. The redness is gone within a couple of hours and it's totally gone in a day or 2. Yeast can't grow in the acid from the vinegar so it stops it in it's tracks. I keep a container of it in the fridge, the cold helps the irritation too.

    I also squeeze a couple drops of it into her ears to help keep infections away. So far, so good!

    For me, her name was Abby
