    Default Yeast infection

    My poor Archie is having some issues with yeast on the tear line of his left eye, a small patch around his eye, & a tiny patch on the side of his nose. It appeared so quickly! I've been reading about cleaning the area with witch hazel pads, stridex, or peroxide, but that seems like more of a preventative measure. We're going to make sure we clean his face with a pad a few times a week to keep this from happening again, but I was wondering if there were any over the counter options for clearing up what he has now.

    Witch hazel is one of the best options. However, you also need to identify what is causing the yeast as it could be food related or from being wet after drinking. Things like that.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    I agree w/Todd… if you can figure out the source that can help you tremendously. We use witch hazel on a cotton pad or duoxo pads…

    Thanks for the replies! I called our vet & he prescribed Otomax & also Malacetic wipes. I picked up some witch hazel, too. I'm pretty sure it's happening because he has a lot of tight wrinkles & I think moisture is getting in when he drinks & then it stays in there. We are going to be better about cleaning his face more regularly. I feel bad that I didn't realize this could happen. �� Any ideas on how long it lasts?

    To get rid of the yeast, you need to use the malacetic or something with chlorohexidine like douxo pads. Witch Hazel is a great maintenance tool, but it won't kill the yeast.

    If you're using malacetic, i would wipe him every day with it until it's all gone. It can take a few days, or longer. I know when we got Wellie, he had yeast in his nose rope. Malacetic didn't work for us, neither did Douxo. I ordered Trizchlor 4 (which has 4% chlorhexidine as opposed to the usual 3%) and it finally worked. Got rid of his yeast in 3 days.

    Banks' yeast is always worked up when her food had white potatoes in it... once I found a food with no chicken, grains or white potato, her face yeast went away.
    We still struggle with her paws because of all the grass/tree allergies she has so i always wipe her face, paws and belly after each trip outside
