|Cupcake, I advise all of my clients not to use human products on their dogs. Huamns have a ph balance this is slightly acidic, while a dog's ph is alkaline. Our shampoos, etc. can wreak havoc on thier skin and coats.
As for the dampness around the eyes, you will want to dry the hair with facial tissue rather than dampen it with baby wipes. The moisture is a breeding ground for yeast, which causes staining and odor.
If you need around his eyes trimmed well but are too nervous to do it yourself, most groomers will offer this service for a nominal fee. Shih tzus tend to have a lot of eye/hair issues so I have quite a few who stop in very few weeks for a quick eye trim to keep that hair at bay. Best of luck.
