Wrinkle Infections in Dogs

Wrinkle infections in dogs are most commonly seen around the face folds/face wrinkles, lip folds, groin, and armpits of the following dog breeds:

  • Bulldogs
  • Mastiffs
  • Pugs
  • Pekingese
  • SharPei

It’s very easy for moisture, dirt, and debris to collect deep within the cute, endearing wrinkles of our feisty, ever-inquisitive, furry friends.  However, unless kept properly clean and dry, these areas can become the perfect environment for rampant bacterial or fungal infections.  Click here to find a store near you that carries Banixx or buy Banixx online.

Signs of wrinkle infections include:

  • Itchy skin. Your dog may be excessively biting or habitually rubbing the wrinkled skin area along the carpet or furniture, which can lead to further injury and infection.
  • Irritated skin. The wrinkle area may have a variety of problems such as redness, rashes, bumpy or crusty areas, or oozing inflamed sores.
  • Foul odor coming from the wrinkles. This is likely symptomatic of a yeast or bacterial infection.

Using Banixx to treat wrinkle infection

For immediate relief from the discomfort of wrinkle infections, whether facial or elsewhere, treat your dog with a gentle, soothing dose of Banixx Pet Care.  Banixx is non-toxic and has no odor or sting to alarm or frighten your dog, making application a breeze for both dog and owner.  And because Banixx is a topical solution – not a medication for dog wrinkles – it’s totally safe to use Banixx in conjunction with any prescribed antibiotic; therefore, there is no risk of over-medicating your dog with Banixx.

How to apply Banixx to your dog’s wrinkle/skin fold infections

Although Banixx may be sprayed directly onto your pet without risk of harm, for wrinkles it may be better to apply Banixx with a piece of sterile gauze or cotton heavily dampened with Banixx.  Gently separate each fold and apply the wet gauze/cotton so that the area is thoroughly saturated with Banixx.  Banixx needs to make good contact to be effective. It’s preferable to treat your dog’s wrinkles with Banixx twice a day until the infection dissipates.  Banixx’s odor-free, sting-free solution delivers a stress-free experience for your dog with speedy results.

How can you prevent dog wrinkle/fold infections?

Wrinkle infections may be prevented by following good hygiene practices for your dog, particularly making sure to keep skin fold wrinkles clean and dry.  Avoid using a hair dryer on your dog’s wrinkles.  Instead, gently dry each skin fold with sterile gauze or a clean/dry wash cloth.  As a preventive measure to keep bacterial and fungal infections at bay, consider cleaning your dog’s wrinkles (skin folds) at least once a day with Banixx.  It’s a safe and soothing solution that makes sense to include as part of your pet’s skin care.
