So, as some of you may have seen, one of my chins has a case of extremely dry ears. I've continued the normal schedule, dust baths Wed. and Sun. with balm a day after each dust bath. But, yesterday and today it seems to have worsened. The dry skin now has a cracked pattern throughout both of the outside of his ears, and the raw skin has spread. Whenever I touch the raw skin, he doesn't flinch or give any signs of sudden pain. It's not bright red, just skin pink. The cracked skin does rub off a little if I rub it with my fingers with a decent amount of pressure. He has also been acting normally. I have now since stopped using Bag Balm until I receive further advice, as for some reason when the balm is used, 2 or so days after usage the cracking and raw skin spreads. I'd hate to go to a vet as I don't want him to be separated from his brother Buttons, and he's already had enough stress the past few months.
