    Default Sore in nose rope

    Hi there! My bully is 4 y/o. I check his nose fold daily to make sure there's not too much gunk building up and today noticed a sore of sorts. It's completely raw skin compared to what's normal for him, compare the left side to the right side. I cleaned it with the anti microbial wipes I have today but wondering if anyone else has come across this and I need to treat it differently. Thanks for your advice!

    Omg poor thing looks sore. I do essential oils and heres a recipe from one of our members for bad ear infections but I use it for Nyala's tail pocket on regular basis. It WORKS!!! A few members has used it with great results.

    Here is the essential oil recipe for ear infections or just maintaining good ear*health.Spray*on cotton ball and wipe out ears ...don't spray directly in*ears.In*a 2 ounce glass spray bottle, combine: 15 drops Lavender 15 drops Geranium 15 drops Frankincense 15 drops Basil 10 drops Arborvitae. Fractionated Coconut Oil to fill the bottle about 3/4 of the way full. Shake bottle well before using. Use once a week to treat ears that have an ear infection or once a month as a preventative measure in ears that are prone to recurrent ear infections. If ears are especially inflamed or infected, dilute 2 drops of lavender in 4 drops of fractionated coconut oil on a cotton ball and apply lightly to soothe the inflamed ear area.

    @ColleenOJ Maude had the same thing last summer. I am sure Helene's receipe works great,but I didn't have the ingredients so I used NuStock. Cleaned it off,and re-applied every other day.

    We use baby ointment, Desitin. It works WONDERS, You'll see the difference overnight PS use a q-tip to get it into the fold, and be sure you only apply there, you don't want him to be able to lick

    NuStock or desitin works perfectly for raw nose ropes

    Definitely diaper rash ointment! My breeder swears by this stuff. I use it in his nose rope and also between toes/paws to keep these areas dry. I usually wipe out as much as I can with a baby wipe in the nose rope, dry thoroughly, then use a pea size amount on my finger and smear around. Works wonders.

    Works wonders on nose rope! (do not apply to paws, zinc is dangerous when ingested).

    Please be careful if/when applying to paws…consider witch hazel for paws, or ACV...

    Thanks everyone! I will try the desitin first since it's the easiest to acquire

    Thank you! I usually only apply a small amount and only when needed in between the paws. I make sure it's dry before letting him go
