    Babywipes soaked in malecectic octic skin cleanser, or another drying agent. You can top it with powder if you wish but it is not necessary. 2x a day if it is bad and gunky. Once it is under control a wipe once or twice a week is all that should be needed.

    Also want to add that cleaning with just wipes will actually cause more yeast and bacteria growth. Also antibiotic ointments will make the area moist. This is just adding fuel to the fire. Strictly use items that dry out the area, like skin/ear cleaners or powder/cornstarch.

    I have always had the understanding that you should NEVER use cornstarch on any yeast rash, as it can make it worse. It's a vegetable product and yeast will feed on it. That's the basic rule for baby diaper rashes... don't use cornstarch just in case it's yeast... so I can assume the same logic can be applied to a doggy butt. I'm sure many have used cornstarch with no issues, but I do know it may potentially cause a bigger problem.
    I personally use an athelete's food powder. It comes in a nice little bottle w/ a small flip up spout that fits perfectly into the tail pocket.

    I thank you for that information! If it is really yeast, there are many published articles that state that cornstarch will actually feed it. If it is just sore or moist, it won't I suppose!

    WOW! I guess you told me, didn't you ! Very nice. Very nice indeed.

    One out of my two have corkscrew...i have found that hibiclens soap (they use this pre/post surgeries) slightly diluted on a baby washcloth, then dry and apply gold bond powder...i also use a bottle to apply it gets way in and have started trimming the hair. It works well.

    That's not what was intended at all! Sometimes the way we say things infer unintended reactions. I was just wondering what you were and have been trying to say..no I'll will intended...I would NEVER disrespect you...I don't even know you! Just not sure what you were trying to say.

    To set your mind at ease, No, I am not a VET. I am an R.N. . . .

    I will never post the word "VET" again in any post since it appears to set alot of people off around here !
