My bulldog has started to get red and smelly in his wrinkles. The problem is mainly on his face in the rope above his nose, but he really, REALLY smells around his tail. This all started about a month ago. He is now 8 months old and we’ve had him since he was 8 weeks. We use blue buffalo brand dog food so I don’t feel like that could be the problem and he doesn’t get table scraps.
Ever since he started smelling in his wrinkles we have been giving him more baths. We’re up to 2 baths a week now and no matter how in depth we clean the wrinkles he stinks again like no other within a day. He even rubs his face and tail on the carpet and walls which puts the smell all over the house! So here we stand sort of at a cross roads with him. We would never give him up by any means, but the stinch is horrendous and we don’t have the money right now to see our vet. Do you or anyone have a home remedy or any ideas of what might be causing this? I would be so greatful if anyone could help us get our bulldog back to his old self. Trust me, I will be waiting for answers!! Thanks

We had a similar problem with our bulldogs (chester + roxy). The wrinkle infections were constant until we got some of the microbial dry bath wipes. I was worried when I saw that you might have an ingrown tail on your bulldog. My advice is to try and see if your bulldog can lose a bit of weight to create room between his tail and the surrounding skin so that it stops growing in and doesn’t need amputation. You dont want to travel that road. Hope you get it figured out. Sara Skinner
