My chinese crested is 7 years old.  He is a very handsome boy but he is covered with blackheads and skin tags.  I have taken him to a vet dermatologist and was told he is healthy and as long as he is not bothered by the condition the best I can do is special shampoo.  Please can anyone offer and answer to eliminating some of the blackheads!!!!!!!

What a handsome boy you have!


My Bailey also has horrible skin -- blackheads and little whitehead looking things that are not whiteheads and don't pop.  Vet isn't concerned with the whitehead looking things -- indicated it had something to do with hair follicles.  When Bailey gets a bath, I do give him a brown sugar scrub, which seems to help with the blackheads.


When I first got Bailey, his skin was far worse and he was diagnosed as having a staph infection.  We have a dermatologist appointment scheduled for next month (it was a 6 week wait to get an appointment).  I just want a second opinion and confirmation that there is nothing to be worried about.  Bailey's skin problems seem to bother me far more than they bother him.  LOL!


I will keep you posted if I learn anything new from out dermatologist appointment.
