Our bully has recently developed red brown dirt in his face wrinkles. We clean them out with baby wipes and with stridex pads everyday. The wrinkles don't smell too strong so we don't think it is yeast but we are new bully owners and are unsure.
The wrinkle face pockets became brown and red following a trip to visit grandma. We are unsure if it might be a food allergy from eating another dogs food or maybe environmental allergy?
If the red brown dirt continues to develop daily would it be a yeast infection?
Could just be from allergies, if it doesn't really smell. Buddy get that sometimes and we just keep it clean.
Have a Great Bully Day.

We have been visiting a lot of family lately so it is possible that he was given table scraps by someone without us knowing. We have not changed his diet at all since we adopted him and switched over to Natures Variety Prairie Chicken Meal but perhaps he recently developed an allergy to the food.
it could just be someone gave him something or something in the environment. i would just keep it clean and dry as possible and see what happens over the next week. i think some here use witch hazel for wrinkles and duoxo pads work wonders to. keeping the wrinkles dry is essential so make sure they are dry after cleaning also.
Would different water do it? I know when I switched mine to filtered Lilly's wrinkles cleared up...but I'm not sure if unfiltered or different water would do that in a short period of time. Just an idea. Table scraps are more likely the culprit...it's so hard to resist that cute face

Banks suffers with this during spring/fall -- try to keep them clean/dry, witch hazel helps a good deal and I also give Benedyl 2x a day to lessen the watery eyes

Thank you for all the love, fun and teachings
Thank you! We are moving in less than a week to Los Angeles so we will see if changes in environment and water source helps. We are cleaning folds everyday and tracking food ingredients! Thanks again for all your help!!!!
Could be a few things. Perhaps he developed a food sensitivity to the chicken you are feeding him. This is possible since a lot of bullies are sensitive/allergic to chicken. It could be the water but I dont know since I always gave my guy filtered water. I do not think if some one sneaked in table food here or there then that would cause it.
Regardless of the cause, clean those wrinkles and folds daily to avoid buildup. Although I use something other than Stridex pads, they are called Douxo Chlorhexidine 3% PS Pads which I cut in half to double my usage. I also use Witch Hazel since its gentle and all natural.
But without an allergy test it would be damn near impossible to tell what is causing the buildup. Goodluck
Thanks! I hope to get an allergy test done when we get to Los Angeles. We are going to be relocating on the westside of Los Angeles
