    Desitin!! It's red and raw and needs a break from any harsher cleaning products. Stick to the Desitin and Vaseline to keep the tears/wetness from irritating…you should see results in a few days to a week, if not, try neosporin for the antibiotic power or prescript. antibiotic to help clear…we have been down this road!!

    Thank you @Laurie! I'll start it tonight! Oh, I hope it clears up soon. He's hasn't messed with it at all, so hopefully it's not too irritating to him. Bless his heart. Thank you!!

    Thanks @TyTysmom! Put some desitin on it tonight before I put him to bed (that way he's less likely to rub his face). I'm praying it looks better in the morning.

    He's looking much better!! Still a little red- but not as bright as yesterday. Kind of reminds me of a diaper rash on a baby. Lol

    I've had my share of those too
    Glad it's looking better, keep up the destine it should be much better tomorrow and by the start of next week healed!! In the mean time keep the vaseline on there!! and check every few hours to make sure the tears aren't sticking to the skin. Once the skin is healed the tiny furs should start growing back and you can maintain your daily routine. Use caution in the future w/certain, more abrasive cleansers…i.e. peroxide. Witch Hazel, unscented baby wipes, certain oils ect…are usually fine for a regular routine.

    @2BullyMama, Omg- it's pretty much completely gone now. I've kept it dry with desitin- worked wonders! I'm still just confused on how it popped up. I keep his face clean (wipe 2x's a day). Only thing I could think is I may have used too much witch hazel when wiping his face? I'm just relieved it's gotten so much better.

    It happens. Nothing you did wrong Tyson gets his bad days too. I haven't had to use Destin on him in over a month then yesterday he was outside alot with Daddy smoking meats, etc. He came in and his folds were all red, Destin had to come out Glad he's so much better!

    My whole heart, Tyson.
