What to Use to Clean the "folds" in My Pugs Face?

My pug is getting crusty stuff in his folds, even though i use a cloth and water on his face everyday. he's starting to get irritated skin… any solutions/materials that would work better? experience from pug owners would be great!

baby wipes are a pretty bad idea. I know babies have sensitive skin, but oddly enough a dog's skin is even more sensitive. They make special wipes frmulated for a dog's skin. THe only name o can think of is Malecetic…but there are others. Ask at your vet or local pet store. Also (this is a tip i learned from a bulldog owner) you can use a very mild ear flush solution (look for one with aloe) on a gauze pad to clean the folds. Use a water soaked pad after the ear cleaning solution. Gauze pads are textured to pick up dirt, and small enough to get into the folds well.

    you can go to PetsMart and get bath whipes. They will work great in the folds of your pugs skin.

    Bring him into the vet. They will be able to do a thorough exam and give you ideas on what to do to help him.

    I'm not a pug mommy, but I do have an english bulldog, so I may be of some help.

    Baby wipes are AWESOME for cleaning wrinkles! If you do need to wash, get some puppy shampoo (exta gentle), and clean with warm water to really get the crust. Baby wipes are good for daily cleaning.

    If he's really got a lot of dampness in his folds, try a little desitin in there - it'll help dry up excess moisture and prevent further irritation.

    Hope that helps! =)

    use a warm wet washcloth and the dry thoroughly. you can put a little powder or cornstarch in there but be careful not to get it in his eyes or nose. a little neosporin wouldnt hurt as long as he doesn't lick it. Baby wipes work ok too.

    I’ve had the same problem with my pug dog. I try and make sure to wipe the build up between his face folds every morning. I use a paper towel or wash cloth with warm water to wipe him clean, then GENTLY drying.. usually with a paper towel for best absorbency.I might pat his face down a couple times throughout the day with a dry cloth if it seems really slimy. On days when the skin under his eyes looks red and irritated I do my same cleaning method, only after I’ve dried his folds, I wash my hands then use my pinky finger to gently rub a SMALL amount of neosporin on the affected area. I would not recommend using neosporin on skin your dog can lick, but since the irritated area is right under his top eye fold I have not had any issues.
