I like to use a process with 3 steps:
1) Wet a round cosmetic pad and put a dab of chlorhexidine/ketoconazole shampoo (eg. ketohex, curaseb ) on it , and wipe out both wrinkles with it
2) Use a second wet round cosmetic pad to wipe out the wrinkle
3) Use a third dry round cosmetic pad to dry out the wrinkle
4) If it's really red like now, put on some diaper rash creme like desitin or sudocreme on wrinkle (optional, just when it's really red )
I repeat this every 2 days for my dog, but while it's red do every day.
[MENTION=16280]Hankster[/MENTION] likes to wipe the wrinkles with some colloidal silver on a microfiber cloth, and also puts on some aloe gel for soothing.
If Cinder gets “yeasty”, I use the douxo wipes to clear that.... just to clean and dry, I use witch hazel and paper towels... the wetness of the tear stains will cause Cinders folds to get red and irritating so I keep desitin on them to keep them dry... works amazing;-)
Thank you for the advice guys. He doesn't usually need his nose folds cleaning as they are never wet. It is recently that they have been wet a lot. I have just been using a dry soft cloth to try and remove the moisture. He has started scratching the last 2 days that's made them really red
I do a lot less of wiping since they both eat raw. I do wipe once a day only for Jake. I use Bag balm if Jake does get red as his face is white n the pigmentations is more sensitive. Great stuff. If you order it make sure it’s NOT for the dog one, nor lotion for body. Get the one that has Utters on the can.. Great for rashes, indigital cyst skin issues...
Monty would get that occasionally, usually scratching because it was itchy. I too would clean really well, then use Desitin. Make sure not to get it in the eyes.
Just saw you are in the UK so don't know if you can get Desitin there. If not, then Sudocrem.
