    Default Chin Sores?

    -mag-jpgHas anyone had sores like these? The derm/vet seems to think they are ingrown hairs and prescribed benzoyl peroxide cream to "dry the area up"
    They appear more like sores to me. I've been keeping the area clean and then applying neoporin... It's been a couple of weeks and they are not gone?

    What kind of feeding bowls do you use? So many are allergic to plastic bowls (Vegas is) try using stainless steel bowls IF your not already doing so, and clean after each feeding or drinking. It makes a big difference in their chins!

    Bella has gotten them in the past when I have let her water dish, which is plastic, go to long with out a cleaning. When i stay on top of the cleaning they seem to go away pretty quickly.

    Can't quite tell from the picture but Wilson has had a few ingrown hairs on his chin. Emma has gotten a few smaller ones. Wilson's two actually festered and popped like it was there was a wood sliver in it. @cali baker Tate gets chin acne...I'm sure she'll chime in too here. Get yourself a metal drinking and feeding bowls. Bullies seem to be sensitive to so many things, including plastic. She's very pretty.

    Looks similar to Tate's chin acne. His vet prescribed him some antibiotics (cant recall which). He was on it for 2 wks and it cleared up nicely . It will come back every so often tho and I need to be diligent about keeping the area clean and dry.

    How old is she? Bacon had really bad chin acne as a pup and eventually grew out of it.
