Default English Bulldog Wrinkles Care

I have an English Bulldog and he has an irritated wrinkle. Does anyone have a good tip on what I can put on it?
Thanks

When my pugs' wrinkles get irritated, I clean them with ear cleaning solution, and then wipe them with a damp soft cloth, and wipe them with a dry cloth to make sure all moisture is out. Sometimes they get small sores, and I use a small amount of polysporin or a similar antibiotic to help clear it up. I also make sure to repeat the wiping of the wrinkles until the cloth comes out clean to make sure all the small hairs and dirt are gone to prevent more irritation.

Baby wipes are probably the best thing to use if you don't have malaseb pledgets. Ear cleaning solution often contains alcohol, which stings. But the baby wipes are easy to find and work very well.

My Goldens, get irritated necks every once in a while due to the heat. I found perxioide wipes really help. And they don't sting and are not messy. Can be found really cheap at Target.

I concur! Both baby wipes and H2O2 wipes work very well. We use it for our Frenchies!

Yep, I used baby wipes and when the area was no longer damp, I'd apply some baking soda in the folds. It's soothing and natural.

Sometimes OTC hydrocortisone works, my pei Jackie has similar problems. Good luck.

You can put "panalog ointment' in the irritated wrinkles. It is only sold with a prescription, but there are alot of places online where you can get it a little cheaper also. Maybe your vet will just write you a prescription for it. The generic name of panalog is animax.
I have english bulldogs and I use it in thier wrinkles and also in thier ears, when the fold inside gets a little red or irritated.
Most ANY vet will willingly let you have this stuff. Its great stuff!
If you can't get that, then get some triple antibiotic ointment from walmart and get a warm cloth and rinse out the wrinkle, then place that on there.
Good luck!!

Just clean it daily with a baby wipe. My EB only has one wrinkle, fortunately, and I clean it every day with a baby wipe and no issues so far. Our breeder recommends alcohol, to keep the area dry, but I haven't used that and if it's irritated, it would probably sting. And post some pictures!

And if you ever need any advice regarding the breed from people that own one, check out http://bulldogdomain.com/index.php. They have message boards and tons of articles about everything related to the breed.
