    Ok, how do I get rid of these red tear stains? Is it a yeast infection? Does she need an antibiotic?
    Have any of you dealt with this before?
    Also, her nose wrinkles are starting to turn the same rusty color as her eye wrinkles!!!!!

    Roxi's face is normally completely white with no wrinkle issues at all! It just seems like this happened overnight!!!! I even came home today at lunch and it seemed to be worse than when we went to the vet this morning!!!!!

    I have Angel Eyes...should I try it?
    Should I get Monistat or something along those lines to help?
    I am at my wits end. I washed her face off when I got home around 7, dried it and didn't put any desitin in the folds. I'm going to leave them alone the rest of the night (just drying).
    Should I flush her eyes with saline solution? Should I get a special shampoo or wipe for her wrinkles? AHHHHH! I'm so confused on what to do!

    I am giggling a bit over here... those tear stains are very minimal, so minimal in fact, I am thinking I better do some bully face wipes over here!

    Seriously tho, those are very light, and nothing to worry about. How old is Roxi now? She may have some small stains as an adult if her eyes water a lot, and it is very common for bullies during allergy season to have some staining. To try to rid of stains, keep them dry is the best way. I find paper towels work great, just dry paper towels. They absorb so much moisture. ......and you can do peroxide mixed with cornstarch, but HONESTLY since they are very minimal and so close to the eye I would not bother. More than likely she will have them during an allergy season and they will fade for the rest of the year.

    Now, about the nose rope, that does look like it could be a bit of yeast. If it gets worse, ask your vet for some panalog (or similar) ointment to treat that area. You can also wipe it with 1/4 vinegar and 3/4 water.

    I also did the 1/4 vinegar 3/4 water rinse after Molly's bath last week because she was incredibly yeasty everywhere (tummy, feet, ears, noserope), and she is all better now. That had been going on for 2 months so I recommend that as well.

    I don't have measurements exactly but it should be about 2T of starch and a bit of peroxide, it should look like liquid but when you try to move it with your fingers it is thick like paste. When you stir with a fork it should not be easy to mix.

    wouldnt some mal-a-ket wipes work for this also? then dry the area after wiping or put some powder on it. just throwing that out there for the experts cause sarah doesnt have nose rope issues unless i give her the wrong food. I also do the water and vinegar mix in a spray bottle for sarahs back and tailpocket issues. 70 water/30 vinegar. I dont do 50/50 cause it seemed to strong for her.

    Thank you @desertskybulldogs. Roxi turned one on June 28th. The staining to me seems like a lot because she has never had any before.

    I was checking her over this morning after church and now her paws are yeasty as well and face is worse. I am going to give her a bath with the hydra pearls shampoo the vet gave me and then wash her feet and girly area with the water vinegar solution.

    Her tail pocket is also starting to concern me so I bought some hibiclens (read a thread about tail pocket cleaning and using this). What should I do about her face (eye wrinkles and nose area) though? I dont want this to keep getting worse.

    About a year ago my sisters Boston/fox terrier had a skin fungus and the vet gave her some malaseb shampoo. Should I try this? Maybe put a tiny bit on a wet wash cloth and then carefully wipe her wrinkles?

    Oh and another question. Mineral oil for her eyes when bathing with stronger smelling stuff? Like the kind used as a laxative? Just wondering.

    Thank you all again for your help!
