    Default Redness and pimples in nose fold - Do I need to see a Vet?

    Last night I found a a whole lot of redness, red dirt like substance under the nose fold of my English bulldog Eli. He has not been scratching it or complaining in anyway about it. I cleaned it with baby wipes and a warm/wet paper towel. This is the first time I've seen any issues with Eli.

    I did search and read quite a few threads about this type of issue here on the forum. I ordered the Douxo pads from Amazon. Eli is due to get groomed on Wed morning.

    Question: Do I need to take him to a Vet, ASAP? Or will the pads and time and heal this issue?

    As lokismom asked... A picture will help, but are his folds real wet and his eyes tear a lot?

    My puppy gets that too..( from what your describing it..it would be easy if i could see a pic) my vet said it was an allergic reaction to something though. i would take him to your vet and see what they say.

    Before we switched Bo to a grain free diet, he always had a yeasty nose (the red like dirt you speak of). I would have to clean it out, then dry it very well, then put an anti fungal cream in there. He never bothered it and it didn't bother him. It was stinky though, like yeast obviously. But it's a problem no more once we got him on the grain free diet.
    If you aren't drying his nose wrinkle after you clean it, it will only get worse and turn into a yeast infection... No fun.

    I do want to mention that he has been on Fromm beef fritata food for almost 3+ months now and has not had any issues.

    My Bella would get like that... I would just clean it well w/soap & water (or the pads) dry it out really good and put diaper ointment in there.

    The douxo pads should work like a charm, it's yeast build up and that's a nice warm cozy place to grow. The douxo pads will kill the infection. It doesn't warrant a vet visit in my opinion, unless you want some panalog which will also work great.

    I have been applying the Douxo pads one or two times a day since Tuesday now. He still has the redness on the one side. How long should it take for the pads to work?

    I was reading about the benefits of using apple cider vinegar. Should I try that out or just wait for the pads to work?

    After I use the Douxo pads on his infection do I need to dry out the area?

    I don't have any witch hazel. How long before the Douxo pads start working? Is there a time when I should be concerned and/or take him to Vet?
