Well, it was intensely better the next day and has been great all week!!!! I put a little more on last night and it's looking 100% better. Nose has no indentations, is cool and wettish, and back to black. Just turn the dial so enough is exposed so you don't scrape the nose with the plastic sides and apply like you would to your lips. I keep it with his doggie things so no one goes to use it, haha. Like everything put on his nose, he didn't like it, but it worked!!
    Bulliemommi...This idea is fab. My bullie is getting a bit of crust on the side of his nose. And I personally looove Carmex lip balm (unscented) when I'm on the ski slopes because it works. I never thought to use this on Melvin's nose. I am going to give this a try. Thanks so much!!

    You know its crazy, I forgot all about using the Carmex. He hasn't had a crusty nose in a while but I am going to get some again to have on hand for him. I need to get another tube! Thanks for bumping this, hope it works for you!

    This topic was just covered in the above thread entitled " Hyperkeratosis of the Nose" which was started by me.
    I have been battling this for years. First with Vaseline, then with 'Snout Soother', then with Vitamin-E, then with Aquaphor (which I do not recommend because there is a Warning label on the tube warning against this petroleum based product from being ingested).
    Keeping the nose "moist" will not protect against chunks of nose falling off, it is a losing battle. I recommend reading up on "Hyperkeratosis of the Nose".
