I get acne... just like a person does.. it looks so painful and if i dont take medicines to clear it up it gets REALLY bad. I have antibotics but after i take it for a while I get a yeast infection in the ears. Is there anything else that i can take to clear up the acne problem?

Sorry to hear about that, Bono! I have had a few pimples in the past. My mommy washes my face with cotton balls dampened with warm water every day and this seems to keep my acne at a minimum. We did discuss this with the vet and I can't remember exactly what she said--I seem to recall she said don't use hydrogen peroxide. Maybe it was witch hazel she said to use. A pug friend of ours uses the stridex acne pads, but I would be nervous about using them. Did your vet give you any suggestions? I am interested in finding out as well, in case any pimples do crop up. I will give my vet a call tomorrow and we can compare what vets suggest!

I know I'm not a pug, but my mom has had 2 in the past. Make sure to use stainless steal or glass dog bowls. The plastic absorbes the grease from food and that causes or aggrevates acne.

Thanks for that hint Fiona. Funny you say that. I use a pretty glass food bowl and a ceramic water bowl now. Originally I had a plastic water bowl and since the change I have not had any acne. Maybe this did have something to do with it!

thinking I have LOTS of acne right now!!!! I have it on my jawls. I literally have about 10-15 on each jawl! I hurt sooooooo bad! Mommy is part of a local pug site (orwa-pugs.com) and they swear by Malaseb Pledgets. They are an antifungal antibacterial wipe - like a stridex wipe but for doggies, kitties and horses (that is what the package says). I have been using them (I found some on eBay, but you usually get them through the vet). Mommy wipes my face and then blows on it... to dry the medicine before I lick it off. It stings and so the blwoing helps alot. You should try those out. I have only used them for a couple days, but they seem to be helping.

I researched the cause of pimples and it is from the dishes - but I have them from my chewies. I chew all the time and then get chewy-cootie-slobber all over my jawls. That cootie slobber gets in my pores and makes pimples. I can't give up the chewies though -- so now, Mommy just wipes my face off about a million times a day! I am a good sport about it and let Mommy clean all she wants. I just hate it when there is one that is about to burst and Mommy pops it (hey it was gonna pop anyway, she says!). Boy that hurts!

I want these pimples gone!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have big painful pimples in my folds cry I already eat out of aluminum bowl. Is it just that mommy has to clean my folds more often? Or could it be doggie puberty or something?

Hi Winkie! Mom washes my face everyday, my eyes, my folds, and around and under my mouth. She wipes my ears usually once a week. I don't usually get acne (knock on wood, mom says). As I posted above, I also use a glass bowl--don't know if this is a reason for no acne or not.

I used to get acne too, but it stopped when mama through away the plastic bowl. The plastic holds a lot of bacteria and germs then grows in the moisture of your muzzle.
Now I get one on a rare occasion.
