    Default Very sore nose. 7 month old bulldog.

    Hey
    realised today my bulldog has a very nose, the wrinkle above her nose in fact. Looks slightly infected. Going to take her vets tomorrow. Just wondering if anybody else knows what this is and how to prevent. It looks like it could be the hair follicle from her whisker. I've never saw this on any of my other bull dogs previously. Any help or advice welcomed. Thanks

    yes, it does look like an ingrown hair.... clean it up with some witch hazel on a cotton pad

    Aww poor guy, just keep it clean, and put some Polysporin on it, until the vet can look at it. I wouldn't recommend pulling out the ingrown hair, even if you could see it, as this could leave the open hair follicle to infection. The vet can remove it, if it is an ingrown hair, and can determine if he needs antibiotics. I hope it clears up soon, and he feels better.
