    Default Neck fold irritation

    My Mila has skin issues under her neck and at the beginning of her chest. She has a lot of skin folds but they aren't squished together. I thought taking off her collar would help but it didn't. It clears up when I use GenOne spray but it comes back. Does anyone have any suggestions. She has a vet appointment for shots on Friday, but I just thought I would ask the community. Thanks in advance!

    I keep Canelo's collar off unless we go out. This way his neck wrinkles can dry and his stay pretty clean, no stains or irritations. For irritated spots I'll bath the spot with soap and water, rinse and allow to dry. I've also rubbed Gold Bond Medicated powder and that helps with skin irritations.

    Have you tried Vetericyn? It usually clears hot spots, and sores.

    Is it dry or moist? Any other spots on her?

    It's dry. There was a hot spot higher on her neck, I put neosporin on it and it cleared up fast. Her neck and chest have come and gone 3 times. As you can see from the pic, her neck is healing but she lost some hair. Today she had a bath with
    HexZole. That was prescribed for my other Bully, Mulan. As all Bulldogs, they have totally different skin issues!
