    I wash ours when I bathe him, and just use a paper towel and Neo-Predif poweder (get some if you can from your vet) in the folds if they are getting icky, which is rare anymore.

    Best thing is keep dry. My vet is very anti creams/wipes, etc to use in there. He says if you keep them dry you won't have issues.

    We use HexaChlor-K wipes (requires prescription) which dries and clears any yest infection almost immediately.
    About once every 2-3 weeks is all that is necessary to clean facial folds and avoid any yeast infections.
    Groomer every 6 weeks to get him bathed, nails clipped/buffed, anal glands emptied, ears cleaned, teeth brushed.
    TOTW Buffalo and Venison kibble from PetFoodExpress also helps keep his coat brilliant white.

    I use the original gold listerine with cotton pads and then dry with paper towel. I do face and chin folds every morning after she eats breakfast. Just watch the eyes

    We use hemorrhoid wipes! I know, sounds crazy, but they are just witch hazel and aloe. They are great! We get the "up&up" brand from Target in the green box.

    Not gross at all, and perfect for daily cleanings. I'll pick up some to give them a try!

    Has anyone tired KetoHex pads? I'm trying to decide if the Duoxo pads or the KetoHex pads are best? I've determined that the Malacet pads are probably not best.

    never heard of them, but they look to have the same ingredients as Duoxo pads... i have used the Duoxo and they work well, but for a cheaper price you can buy the solution at the local drug store and make up cotton pads .... it is chlorhexidine. @Marine91 taught me this little money saver

    I may need to check on these myself since it has ketoconazole in them to combat yeast. I've used chlorhexidine to clean everything from wrinkles, to tail pockets or any area of irritation that may become infected. You can purchase a gallon for $20-30 and it lasts FOREVER because you dilute it. The smell isn't strong and it's antibacterial. I think you'd save a lot of $ going this route because pads/wipes can be costly and you run out of them so quickly. I like the idea of making your own pads with the chlorhexidine solution but I just use a washcloth.

    Do you just use diluted chlorhexidine? I know it is a long shot, but is there any substitute for the PS (Phytosphingosine salicyloyl) that Douxo claims helps restore the skin's lipid layer? I'd prefer to make my own without the added inactive ingredients.

    I experimented with adding chlorhexidine solution to Buttercup's regular fold-wiping solution (which is just an ear flush w ketoconazole, ceramide, & limited added inactive ingredients). So far this seems to work better than the original solution but I'd like to try it a while longer before drawing any conclusions. I diluted it to about 0.25% chlorhexidine.

    I am going to try the witch hazel you and others have recommended. Thanks!

    I just use 2% chlorohexidine solution for face wrinkles and folds and 4% solution everywhere else. If it isn't too bad i will use witch hazel only. Never looked and any replacement additives as she also gets a coconut oil wipe down once a week after her bath which helps to replace lost oils and such.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.
