    agreed! I use witch hazel, like every other day and just a dry cloth daily

    Oh, interesting. OK, I got into a panic with that tail pocket infection. Maybe I shouldn't use mal wipes on the tail pocket and ears so much also. Blah! I'll switch back to witch hazel on everything.

    Thansk!

    Mal wipes are good, but use them maybe 1-2 week.

    This is what Abbott's folds look like most everyday without wiping.His is from constant eye watering so we use Vaseline to help with the scalding per our vet.

    Figures I'd create more problems...ugh!

    If that's the probelm, do you guys think I should use Desitin or A&D to fix her face?

    while i was dog sitting for my stepson his dog got this really bad.. i cleaned it alot , wipes, powder, even gave her benadryl.. at first i thought it was stress from missing him but now i think there was a chance it was the detergent i was using on the bed she and i slept on.. they told me two days after returning home it was 75% better already and she mentioned she uses scent free detergent.. you may start checking there and see if it helps..

    Thanks all! It's still rusty, but it's better than it was. It looks like bad tear stains, but she had been tear stain free since she aged out of Puppy Fromms.

    I'll keep using witch hazel and see what happens.

    I use cotton wool pads for Bruces wet crease once a day and every other day i'll wet one with warm water to wipe it but then i'll try to dry it as much as I can after with dry cotton wool pads

    I would only use Desitin until the irritation went away. It looks like raw skin to me.

    I've been using the witch hazel and A&D and it's looking much better. I'm keeping an eye on it for sure, though. Thank you!! I might just try to use only A&D (or Desitin) to see if that speeds up healing.

    I know this is an older thread- but Lockjaw just popped up with something similar today. I haven't changed anything. I wipe his face after both feedings; once with warm paper towel then go over it with witch hazel. Tonight I noticed the skin under his left eye was really red. I wiped it with warm water, then rubbed coconut oil on it. Should I try desitin or A&D instead? My poor baby. I feel so bad.
