    Default *Really* red and irritated in face fold...

    Is this an allergy thing? I've been using malacetic wipes daily for a week. (The redness started a few days ago.) Is that the result of too much mal wipes usage?

    Could be an irritation from overuse of the wipes. I was doing extra cleaning on Harvey's bum and tail pocket and he appeared uncomfortable trying to reach his backside and was constantly sitting down. His bum was red too.

    I thought I was doing something good. I got scared after her recent tail pocket infection, so I've been mal wiping her face folds, ears, and tail pocket every single day for a week now.

    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?

    There is always something with these Bulldogs, I tell you. But here we are as parents doing the best we can.

    There really is always something. The vet even commented on how much I'm spending.

    ETA: I'm sure she hates me after getting those pictures, by the way.

    I have quit using the wipes on Mabel every day. Instead, my vet recommended a wet, warm washcloth for her folds every day. It's working!

    I did the same with Henry when I was using wipes he was allergic to. I felt terrible. Now I alternate cleaning from witch hazel, peroxide, wipes he's not allergic to, and acne pads. No problem since I decided to use a variety of cleaners.

    I would keep the stronger wipes for maybe 1-2 times a week or if you see something brewing (getting red, etc) but for everyday just a regular wipe with some witch hazel. Or even just a dry napkin, or wash cloth. How is Bella today?

    Well, I didn't use the mal wipes on her face yesterday (and I put a little A&D on the irritation). Today, it's more rusty brown than flaming red. I guess I'll go back to witch hazel on her eye folds.

    So, witch hazel is milder than Malacetic wipes?

    Thanks Jessica!!

    Yes Witch hazel is very mild, and safe for everyday use. You don't have to drench the wipe in it, just a bit goes a long way - goal is just to keep the wrinkles clean & dry The baby ointment is great, I use Destin (A&D -same thing) when I start to see some irritation and usually its gone in a day or two.

    Desitin works wonders on raw skin.
