Pugs, bulldogs, and other wrinkly type dogs are at risk for developing infections between those cute skin folds. While irritated dog wrinkles are common, they should not be considered the norm. It is most important to treat the condition as soon as possible, once spotted, to reduce discomfort and prevent the infection from getting worse. One of the first signs of irritated dog wrinkles is often a musty or stinky odor. As infection sets in, the development of red inflamed skin, crusty sores or scabs, or slimy skin may happen.

Infected or irritated wrinkles can impact any part of your dog’s body, from that adorable squishy face to that wrinkly tail pocket. Wrinkles are easily infected because they are dark and moist, also known as the perfect environment for bacteria to grow.

That is why it is crucial to clean out your canine friend’s wrinkles as much as several times per day. Every time your furkid eats or drinks, moisture and food particles are likely to splash up to collect in those wrinkles. During playtime outside, other types of debris can squeeze in between wrinkles. If this mixture of moisture, food and debris is not regularly cleaned, it will foster bacterial life.


There are different stages of wrinkle infections, though it generally begins with skin fold dermatitis, ala inflamed skin. Untreated dermatitis could develop into a more serious skin disease such as a pyoderma infection. Pyoderma literally translates to “pus in the skin,” so at this stage, bumps oozing icky stuff would be a likely sight. Wrinkles are also susceptible to staph infections. It is important to note that irritated or infected wrinkles will not heal on their own, so without treatment, in almost all cases, the problem WILL WORSEN.

Spot what looks to be an infected wrinkled look? Quickly make a visit to your veterinarian. It is of utmost importance to clean those doggie wrinkles with a moist towel several times a day, especially after food or drink. After which, go back over those wrinkles with a dry towel to remove any moisture. Finish up by applying some Natural Dog Company organic Wrinkle Balm in between those wrinkles. Do not forget to clean the water dish daily, and also clean the feeding bowl between each feeding. Food and water dishes are bacteria sources that could cause infected or irritated wrinkles.
