Rebbie's nose roll looks a little red and it is bothering him. I have some left over ear stuff(starts with an m and ends with an x). I have read on here that I can use that for nose roll infections. Can I try that or do I need to get an official diagnosis from the vet? If I do use that, do I just squirt some on some tissue and rub in? Do I need to wipe it out until it is dry?
He is also itchy. It is not fleas. He looks to have broken out under his armpits(or is it leg pits?? ;) ) and scratching there. Can I try giving him some benedryl to see if that helps?
I would give him some Benadryl tonight but it sounds like you need to see the vet for his nose rolls. Try cleaning his nose rolls and dry well and see what they look like tomorrow. Usually the red and itching indicates yeast so you may need a different med than the one for his ears.Someone else may chime in with some better advice, I haven't had any issues with a nose roll problem yet. Good luck, hope he feels better.

I've been using ChloraSeb (or is it CloraSeb?) wipes for Stalin's face wrinkles. I wipe the wrinkles out, then swipe through with a kleenex quickly. I ordered them online....can't remember from which site, I took whatever was cheapest with the price and shipping.

Mometamax? If so, it's very good for nose roll infections. It will cure both bacterial infections and fungal (yeast) infections.
Apply it once or twice a day. Afterward use the following recipe at least weekly to clean the nose roll:
1/3 c. 70% isopropyl alcohol (regular rubbing alcohol)
1/3 c. white vinegar
1/3 c. witch hazel
5-10 drops tea tree oil.
In a gentle way, you can shake the world.
