Default Acne?

Does anyone have boxer babies that get little red bumps on their chin? Sebastian is going on 7 months and just started getting red bumps on his chin that don't seem to go away with his regular allergy regimen Acne?-imageuploadedbypg-free1354589637.219982.jpg

Yes! My Tyson started getting acne right at about the 6 mo mark. Try using stainless steel bowls, plastic harbors bacteria. And it's also helped us tremendously to wash his toys - ropes, everything every couple weeks. Coconut oil also works wonders- systemically and directly on the chin as well. If those don't work, I would def have the vet put him on a round of antibiotics. As far as the coconut oil - place on his chin once or twice daily- it took us a couple weeks to notice a big change but it did help. I also give Tyson 2 tsp coconut oil twice daily on his food. If you give it on food start slow- like 1 tsp/ day or so. It causes them to detox at first and can cause loose stools if they aren't weened up to the certain amt. eventually they can have 1 tsp/ 10 lbs body weight

Also try wiping his chin w gentle soap and water either once a day or baby wipe his mouth after he eats - just like people, the bacteria and oil cause the acne. I read somewhere that salicylic acid helps, but I never saw a change in the acne when I used that on his chin

Kamo used to break out in acne and we tried the antibacterial soaps, got rid of all her plastic toys, plastic dishes etc washed all her other toys, and switched to stainless steel. Not good enough. She was allergic to the stainless steel as well. All our girls now have porcelain bowls and they are ran thru the dishwasher at least every two days to sterilize. Works great.

Thanks for the feed back. He has stainless bowls and we wash his toys and bedding once a week. I never thought about cleaning his face after he eats! Good idea, he was on antibiotics for 14 days for another problem but it didn't help with the acne. Ill give him a good wash tonight and see how it goes
