    Default Very yeasty facial folds.

    So it appears I am dealing with a yeast infection in the facial folds and nose rope. I unfortunately believe I caused this with a veggie melody I made duchess while switching her from natures variety frozen raw to homemade raw diet. @porkysmamma suggested monistat 7 and it was working then all the sudden over night, after feeding the veggie melody, both face folds and nose rope were very,very red and irritated. I called my vet and he said get duoxo pads.,tonight is the first night I am using them. I am going to call back in the morning and see if he will give me a prescription for panalog cream as I am out of town and can't go for office visit. Any other suggestions that might work until I get back home, if he won't give me panalog prescription.

    I asked a very similar question today and @desertskybulldogs recommended Malacetic Ultra as well as the Panalog.

    @elearn from what I understand malacetic wipes are no longer available duoxo pads are similar. Panalog ointment is also not available. 1800petmeds.com has a generic for it though. It's just getting a prescription while out of town that is tricky.

    Ahh OK. I have the Duoxo pads, but they didnt seem to work too well. However, I've seen some stuff in the grocery store called Hibiclens that has the same stuff as the Duoxo pads, except it is a little stronger. I was wondering if that would work, and surely enough a few days later someone here on EBN suggested using Hibiclens as a replacement for Duoxo pads (its cheaper too).

    franklin got a really bad yeast infection on his tail all I used was apple cider vinegar an water put it in a spray bottle half/half sprayed it on the tail it will burn the first time you do it but it stops you just have to keep with it an in 4 days it was gone an now I give him apple cider vinegar in his water every day so he will never get it again ACV is so good for dogs it levels their PH it keeps the bacteria away in the body it helps them digest everything properly so you should really give that a try its 100% real ACV I get a big jug of it an it works great an they actually love the taste of it oh an I put it on baby wipes an wash his tear stains with it an wash his body the weeks I don't bath him so if you need anything just pm me good luck

    Yeah, I have had no problem getting Malacetic wipes at all. I love the apricot smell!!

    @RaRett thanks for the link. Are these better than duoxo pads? I could find an ingredient list.

    I use this every day ( malacetic ultra or the regular) and my puppy goes NUTTS. He will run around like it is stinging him or something. If I just use something like Epi octic it doesnt seem to bother him but for some reason that Malaectic on his face folds and rope makes him run around the room for a bit. Hero

    I will look into these - but I have the Duoxo pads and Herman runs like the dickens from them. He seems to be afraid of round pads LOL. If these look like baby wipes he'll probably tolerate them. Do you have to dry the folds after using these?
