    Default Irritated nose wrinkle

    I was cleaning Maggies wrinkle yesterday and noticing brownish red stuff coming out on the cotton. I have always just used a dry cotton ball and wiped a few times and it was always clean so I though maybe she just got into the dirt or something. Today I cleaned again and still the same stuff, plus it looks irritated to me.She didn't fuss when I was cleaning it so I'm not sure it hurts but it doesn't look good. I cleaned it today with a cleanser and put some A&D ointment on it. I tried to take a good picture I'm hoping someone can tell me what this could be & if there is anything else I can try or should I bring her to the vet?
    * Also anyone know why when I upload pictures they wind up sideways or upside down?

    is the picture before you put the A&D on? Cause it kinda looks like a yeast infection I wash Franklin's with ACV/ water an it looks good an if It's a yeast infection ACV will get rid of it in a couple of days just make sure you keep it dry. I'm sure others will be along soon to give their input. Good luck

    ACV = apple cider vinegar. Get Bragg's brand if you can (with the 'mother' - the weird cloudy stuff at the bottom of the bottle)

    I use trizCHLOR 4 wipes. They are amazing!! I use them at night to clean his wrinkles, toes and tail pocket. You can buy them on amazon, my vets office also sells them so you could try your vet as well. They have a drying agent in them so you don't need to dry after you wipe the wrinkles.

    If the ACV doesn't work I highly recommend panalog ointment from your vet. It works great. But will require a vet visit, unless you have a cool vet you can just call for a script

    Tank's "dimples" beside his nose looked like that a few weeks ago. I somehow had not noticed how deep they had become as he had grown. I called the vet for Panalog ointment at the recommendation of EBNers, but was told they don't carry that any longer. I had started using witch hazel but the vet suggested Duoxo pads instead, as the witch hazel was not recommended for use near eyes. The Duoxo pads really fixed the area fast, but next time I will order them Amazon.com, as they are much cheaper.

    The vet used to give me MalAcetic wipes for Hoss, and so I use them now with Roxy. She loves to have her face cleaned and the wipes make her smell like apricots.

    Her nose dimples were getting a little irritated, but once we started with the MalAcetic they cleared up within about a day.

    It's a yeast infection poor porky has a very deep nose rope n is very prone to them I clean a few times a week with witch hazel (it's like alcohol but less harsh it evaporates though which is great) my vet always tries to save me $$ so when I called to tell her porky had an infection she told me to buy monistat 7 clean n apply twice a day works great and within 3 days it's always gone!!!!!!! Best part walmart has it for $9 n no vet trip

    I have heard of so many different types of wipes/ointments/treatment for cleaning folds: trizchlor 4, duoxo pads, panalog ointment, and the malacetic wipes. Do they all basically work the same/serve the same purpose? Up until this point, I have just been using baby wipes but I would like to get something stronger, as Tonka has bad allergies and his little nose dimples get dirty easily too, with the brown spots similar to Maggie's in the picture posted. Is one kind recommended over the others or are any and all good to use?

    A lot of ppl recommend apple cider vinegar I personally haven't tried it only bcuz I don't have any right now lol butttt if he has allergies id say the more natural the better that's for cleaning anyways n preventative as far as if he gets an infection what to use idk I've only ever used the monistat but if he has allergies it may make it worse!!!! Good luck!!!!
