Default Lip Fold Pyoderma

Hello everyone,

I would like to know if anyones puppers as ever had Lip Fold Pyoderma?

I think that is what Electra has. On the right side of the lower lip it is very crusty looking and red. I don't know if she scraped it on something or if it is caused by something else.

I want to know if there is anything I can do to try and clear it up. Since we moved we are in the process of finding a new vet and checking them out before we make a decision on who we are going to get.

I will post a pic and show you what it looks like.

So if people can post their remedies to this issue.

Thanks,

Mike

Is it a secondary skin infection? Can you post a picture? Do you want holistic options?

I know it well, or should I say knew it well.....
I posted several threads on here (cannot find) about that topic.
Gypsy kept getting dry, crusty, cracked and I'm sure very sore lips from drooling so much. Especially, when she plays with her frisbee.

I tried everything, went to the vet and what he gave me didn't work. Tried Desitin, vaseline, vitamin E all didn't work.
Then I tried something that my mom used on us as kids when we lived in Germany. It's called Penaten Cream and they don't make it in the U.S.A. It cleared it up completely in 2 days.
I found a German Store where you can buy it online.
It's only about $10 plus shipping, and it's your answer, BELIEVE ME, I know!
Apply on clean, dry lips, and a little goes a long way.
Also, if you dog drools alot, dry their mouth off with a rag during the day.

Here is a link:
http://parthenonfoods.com/penaten-cr...ml-p-1766.html

Johnson and Johnson took over the company, but they only sell it in Germany (Europe)

P.S. It works wonders on ALL kinds of sores and rashes. For you and your dog. It's made from the oil of the wool of sheep.
Smells great though.

They sell that cream here in Canada. We used that cream when our daughter had diaper rashes when she was a baby. We can go to the drug store and get some of it.

Yes I would like some holistic options. I will post a pick once my batteries are charged for the camera.

That's great you can buy it there.
Yes, it is diaper rash cream, but it does a lot more than that.
It will clear it right up, I bet money on it!

You won't be disappointed.
It is also good for cuts, scrapes and burns for you and your dog.
The tin they have pictured (if you got it from the store I had in the link), was their 100th Anniversary tin.
Those are gone now, so it will come in a different tin.
They have been around for over 100 years and it took Gypsy with her lip fold Pyoderma for me to finally get some.
My mother was thrilled when I gave her a couple of tins also.
Over the years, she has mentioned how much she missed not having any and I don't know why it didn't dawn on me to get some sooner.
She is 83 and we have been in the U.S.A. since 1960.
So, that's how long it's been since she had any.
Better late than never, huh?
It took my love for my dog to get it. Not that I don't love my mom.............
Okay, stepping down from my soapbox now.


Penaten Cream

Description: For over 100 years, Penaten Cream has been used for the treatment of diaper rash, sunburn, dermatitis and for the relief of itching due to eczema.
