wish I could help .. Tillie had REALLLLLLY bad red staining when she was little.
I did end up putting her on Tylan Powder for 6 weeks (active ingredient in Angel Eyes) and it DID help a LOT. but also ended up giving her a really weird skin outbreak...
I tried giving her the powder again about 6 months ago and 2 weeks into the treatment I noticed her skin was ANGRY red all along her side and starting to "crack" in places!!
I stopped the typlan powder immediatly and her skin slowly calmed down. So I am certain that is what caused her original outbreak as she was only 9 months old at the time and I wasn't as observant and educated as I am now.
I have tried EVERYTHING, cleaning her eyes with contact lens solution, damp wash cloth, only giving bottled water, she is on a home cooked diet with NO allergens anywhere near her, yet her eyes are still very wet and gross and her face, literally smells like yeast. gross. I know. I bake a. lot. so know the smell well. it is odd.
I use a flea comb every morning and evening to clean the gunk out and even dab a kleenex along her face to soak up some of the moisture.
Tillie is 2 1/2 yrs old now and although the tear staining itself isn't TOO bad anymore, she def. still has some. I have tried growing the hair out AND trimming it, niether way makes any difference for her.
sooooooo, good luck!! and I'll be following this thread to see if anyone has any new suggestions worth trying!
