    Default Raw, Red irritated Wriinkles .... AGAIN !

    Well, here we go again. No matter what I do, and what product I use to keep Maximus' wrinkles clean and dry, nothing helps, and they are red, irritated, and the skin is down-right RAW and sore ! I know the moisture is the culprit, and I try and keep them dry, but I just can't keep up with it, and every day I am having to dry them, wipe them and apply DESITIN. It's not a long term solution and I don't find it effective.

    There just has to be something out there that will help heal these red raw irritated wrinkles !

    Does anyone know of anything that I can use that we haven't already talked about here ......?

    Thanks, as always, for your help with this ..

    have you tried gold bond powder ?? I would apply a little in each fold to absorb the moisture? also I really believe less is more I found in the past the more I wiped , dried, desitin etc the worse they got?

    We use Gold Bond Powder. I dip a q-tip in it and gently pat it in Frank's irritated wrinkle. It seems to help.

    Is it his eye wrinkes? Maybe an allergy making his eyes water a lot? I do desitin too but have cut back to every two days. A lot of people do well with gold bond powder. Think he could have a yeast thing going on? If so, try panalog.

    I agree.... try gold bond powder, then after it heals don't wash his wrinkles so frequently or unless it is eye allergies that are making it moist, you might need to dry them more often, wrinkles do NOT need to be cleaned every day. I only do my bulldogs once a week and "knock on wood' I have never had a wrinkle problem in 9 bulldogs over the last 7 years.

    I wipe my bullies face and wrinkles with Stridex pads with one with aloe...this helps keep the wrinkles dry..

    The wrinkles that are raw and irritated are the two large wrinkles on either side of his nose. The skin is raw and very red. If I don't dry them and wipe them daily they get really raw and 'crusty'. I've cleaned them with Mal-a-Ket wipes, and used the Desitin, but they are not healing....

    I think I will use the Gold Bond powder and switch to Stridex pads which are easier to find locally.

    Thanks guys for your help with this again .... !

    You also might want to go a day between cleanings and see if this actually helps. As two others have stated, I have found that when I stopped doing it every day, it actually got a bit better. Not the case with the nose rope, but it is for those wrinkles, at least for Gator.

    I would try the powder but in my opinion NOT use the stidex pads while they are so raw.. I would think that would burn .... maybe try that after they heal up

    I use an anti-fungal yeast shampoo from our vet, I put a few squirts on a wash cloth wet it wipe, use a clean wet wash cloth rinse and a third wash cloth to dry. You might have to see a vet and get a steroid to heal up the open sores.

    That gunk is yeast, or some fungus! it needs to be killed. Get some panalog from your vet.
