    Default Yeast and Nose Rope Tip

    For anyone who is interested

    When Gator was at the ER, I asked them to look at the nasty yeast under his rope from his pork issue. She said it actually looked better than most (which shocked me and made me think, who are these people with those poor dogs and can I confiscate them for negligence ). At any rate, I was going to clean it when I fed him his dinner there since he was staying over night. I had desitin and gold bond powder along with the "magic stuff" that someone recommended (can't remember who but THANK YOU!). She said to use anything with "Mal" in the name (which this has) and she would use the powder over the desitin. So, I thought I would try it even though it clumps on him sometimes.

    Flash forward. I didn't really like the smell of the gold bond so my silly mind wandered and looked in the cabinet and I came across some corn starch. I have used it all week and wouldn't you know.....that yeast is almost gone! Can't believe it! Been battling it for weeks! WHOO HOO!!!

    So, tip of the day is use CORN STARCH! Just the $1.50 can from the grocery store. Works GREAT.

    edited to add: you have to use something to get rid of the yeast in conjunction with the corn starch. It is really to keep it BONE DRY so that it doesn't continue to spread or as a preventative by keeping the area dry.

    actually she is doing much better cept for seasonal allergies. her yeast on pads seems to be going away and she still has some remnants of her interdigital cysts which try to flair up some and her tailpocket will be ok one day then not so much the next. but all in all she is doing better. giving her zyrtec now instead of benadryl much better. i was just making a joke really

    Great tip on the cornstarch. I have a bottle of gold bond pwdr...i know what u mean about the smell . How do you apply the cornstarch in their nose ropes and other wrinkles on their faces? it's so tricky w/my guys, they keep shaking their heads or just want to lick my fingers.

    @cowsmom I know you were joking but I really was wondering how she was doing. Was gonna send a message about her. She is too sweet.

    @cali baker, I just use my finger. I sprinkled it in a cruet dish and then pat it with my finger and spread it in there. Gypsy tries to eat it too but I now sit on her (yes, I said sit on her) to keep her still. lol. Some use a ketchup or mustard squeeze bottle for powders. The kind with the small tips. I probably would have tried baby powder but my husband can't stand the smell. So then I thought, hmmm....this smells like nothing!

    Reading all this about wiping their butts makes me laugh because after we got Heff I was telling my teenage niece I have to wipe his butt every time he goes. My niece turned to me laughing and said so uncle I guess you really are an asswipe after all!! LOL She got me.

    HAHA!!! Good for her! LMBO!!! If you go back and read some of my early posts when I first got Gator, you will see that I just could NOT believe that I had to wipe a dogs butt. I mean, seriously! Who wipes a dog butt??? But now, it is old hat lol.

    @Jack Daniels, for regular maintenance I, personally don't use baby wipes. Only because they leave a residue that I don't care for. I do different things for each dog as they need a different kind of care. For Gypsy (who doesn't have any yeast), I use a clean washcloth that is just wet with plain water. I then dry really, really well and now am using the corn starch to keep her nose wrinkles and eye wrinkles dry. I went to Walmart and bought four or five of those 12 packs of white washcloths (the ones that cost $5 for a 12pk) and they are just for face washing. I like white because I can bleach them if needed. For her chin, after she eats (twice a day) I wipe with the GENTLE stridex pads (yes, they make a "gentle" one) and then dry and put on antibiotic cream if she has active acne.

    For Gator (who has yeast issues right now), I squirt some MalAcetic or Malaseb on the cotton rounds and wipe, then dry, then corn starch. Sometimes, if the skin under the yeast was looking too pink, I would wipe with just a cloth and water after the MalAcetic sat for a few minutes.

    Anyway, hope this helps!
