    Mocha also has a screw tail and it is tight. i wipe her with either baby wipes or Malacetic wipes. After I make sure I dry the area really good and then apply goldbond powder(the yellow one). I have heard of the Preparation H when it gets irritated and also desitin.

    Lucy has a somewhat tight tail pocket. Out vet told us to keep it "clean and dry" on her very first visit so we have done that for the 2.5 years we have had her and thankfully no problems. We have had the same routine around here since day one. It works for us so far. I use a diluted baby shampoo mixture and I keep it in a picnic ketchup bottle container with a nozzle. I prefer the solution to the baby wipes because I feel like a wet cloth gets the face cleaner. I use baby cotton washcloths (they are thinner). I clean her face folds and nose rope, rinse and dry. I clean her tail pocket area--rinse and dry. Every day or two I use A&D baby ointment in and around her tail pocket and screw tail. If I forget to put on the ointment she will scootch on the rug. Keeping the tail pocket clean and dry is the key. I do wipe her with either a clean tissue or a baby wipe after every #2 like many of you. I also dry with a tissue or dry cloth if I use a wet baby wipe after a #2. So far, this has worked for us. Lucy's wrinkles and tail pocket have never been a problem. The morning routine sounds like it takes a long time--but it really doesn't. Lucy is used to it and she sits there like a champ--no, more like a DIVA!

    I too have been using Gold Bond powder on my girls' tail (I swear by the yellow bottle). It seems to work pretty well, it's just so darn hard to get it up in there. She has a very very tight cinnamon bun tail and I am constantly looking for ways to clean it really well. I use baby wipes to clean it, then dry it with a baby washcloth, then try my best to powder it. Any ideas on how to get the powder in the curls of her tail?

    Hi! I am also laughing with the poop shoot and the yard muffin- too funny!!
    I clean Kairos pocket with baby wipes every 3-4 days and the I put a little preparation H ointment or diaper rash cream, just in case there is any irritation.
