    I am thinking along the same lines as some other posters. Maybe you can try cleaning them with just plain water and a soft cloth and then dry until the fur looks "fluffy". Then use the desitin. The malaket wipes could possibly be irritating even more. I bought several packs of the $5 for 12 washcloths at walmart. I got the white ones so I can bleach them. If there is gunk, it might be worth it to ask the vet some cream?

    I know someone asked about food too. Think that could be the issue?

    Poor Gator had a terrible time with under his nose rope. I took him to the vet and she gave us some Duoxo wipes and they work like a dream. Within a few days, it was clean and healthy. I just clean under there with the wipe, then use cottonballs to make sure it is very dry. I have been putting desitin every other day and it is working to keep it looking good.

    Good luck and I hope you can figure it out.

    Well, I ended up taking Maximus to the Vet. The Vet gave him an injection of Dexamethasone, and put him on Antibiotics for 10-days.
    The injection did wonders ---- Max never looked so good. All of his Face redness and swelling disappeared. I've never seen him look so good. And the Antibiotics took care of the irritated red raw skin.
    The Vet thinks ALLERGIES are the problems, so Max will have to be on a low-dose prednisone on a pretty regular basis.

    The face wrinkles still pose a problem, and water only with a dry cloth won't help. He has deep face wrinkles that collect alot of moisture. Keeping them dry is important, but when they become red, raw and irritated, the Mal-a-Ket wipes with Chlorhexidine have to be used, with the Desitin to keep things under control.

    I don't know of any other products I could use for this .......

    You know..I was reading some reviews on the Mal a ket wipes and found some people thought they were too harsh. I use Douxo Chlorhexidine 3% wipes for Gator and LOVE them. They are a little more gentle than the Mal a ket.

    I did buy the Douxo Chlorhexidine wipes also, and have been using them.

    Max was at the VET again today, since it appears alot of this is Allery related - so again he got a Dexamethasone injection and will be on Prednisone oral for 14-days.

    Try as I might, I can't seem to keep his wrinkles dry, and with constant moisture build up, the skin is breaking down, so even with the Mal-a-Ket wipes, the Douxo Chlorhexidine wipes, and the Desitin ointment, I'm not seeing much of an improvement ........

    Dermachlor K Flush works phenomenal for the wrinkles

    dries them right up and gets rid of the red

    mac's wrinkles were always raw and required thorough daily cleanings until I started this stuff

    after 3-4 days of use they were clear for weeks

    ask your vet for a bottle(think it's about $20)

    It may also be available on the net without a script

    @BIG MAC I might give that a try. How do you use it? I did look it up and it says for wounds and yeast issues for use on cats, dogs, and horses.

    it's an anti-septic for dermatological conditions with antiseptic, antimicrobial, anti-fungal, cleansing and deodorizing formulation.

    It supposedly works for a lot of things but it definitely did the job for my dogs wrinkles, he actually has hair growing between them now when before it was just all raw redness.

    you squirt it on and then wipe the excess with a cotton ball, it also has something in it to make it not burn.


    edit: it is also great for cleaning your dogs ears, the stuff has a great cherry smell to it

    Poor Bella has had some major ups and downs with her face issues. She has allergies and gets gunk in her wrinkles. One night they will all be fine and then the next night there will be a huge sore spot in one of her wrinkles. She also has been battling some "acne on her jowels and chin area. I tried so many things and swear by 3 that I have found. 1st off, I hated desitin! It just doesn't compare to Triple Paste Ointment. That will clear up a bad raw spot in a day or two. My nightly routine with Bella has been to use wet wipes in all her wrinkles and wipe her chin, jowels, and turkey neck. Then I use witch hazel on her raw spots and her chin/jowels. I rub everything down gently with a dry cloth and blow in her wrinkles (she loves that part). Then I apply triple paste to all wrinkles and aquaphor to the rest of her face. These have been a magic combination and have done wonders for her.

    Well, I can't support the "Less is More" recommendation when it comes to Max's wrinkles ...... If I do not care for them daily, they will get worse, red, raw, crusty and then I have a major problem trying to clean them .....

    As for his water ...... I don't think when he drinks he gets the water anywhere near the 2 wrinkles on either side of his nose that is the problem, so that's not the problem either.

    He is using all Stainless steel water and food bowls - NO PLASTIC.

    I've used both Mal-a-Ket wipes and the Duoxo wipes - neither seems to help heal the red, raw irritated wrinkles.

    I've used DESITIN, and that doesn't "heal" anything either.....

    I have Stridex pads, use them, I see no difference.....

    I've used Gold Bond powder, and I'm not seeing any difference......unless I should be applying it twice a day ....should I ?

    I have Chlorhexidine skin cleanser and Chlorhexidine shampoo ......
    the skin cleanser is 4% Chlorhexidine and should be powerful enough
    to heal the irritations .... but I would have to use it daily .....

    Max is on TASTE OF THE WILD GRAIN-FREE SIERRA MOUNTAIN FORMULA - which is Lamb, and he is also on WELLNESS CORE GRAIN-FREE Reduced Fat dog food.

    At this point, I think I am going to have him seen by a VET Dermatologist/Allergist...

    I've also thought about changing his food to NATURAL BALANCE Limited Ingredient Grain-Free Diet, like Chicken and sweet potatoe, or Duck and sweet potatoe.

    But first I think he needs to be evaluated by a Dermatologist ...........

    @Maximus I would switch to a food that is poulty and grain free. Maybe Natural Balance LID...I think there is a salmon formula? Taking him to a Dermatologist is a good idea. Often they can help you figure out what is causing the issues.
