Infected wrinkles on mouth?

It seems that Bronsons lip wrinkles on his lower lip have become infected. I have read online to keep it clean using hydrogen peroxide. Are there any ointments I can/should put on it? He chews his stuffed animals but that is it. He does not get bones very often or anything hard to chew on and he doesn't chew anything else inside/outside the house. This is the first time he has had this issue, does anyone have any experience with this? Thanks

My previous old Gold had that problem several times, when we were stationed in Germany.
I saw a German vet and he prescribed something to put on it. He said, that if it continues to happen, our Sam might need surgery to trim the loose area a bit, like a little nip and tuck. But, I stayed on top of it with cleaning and he never had a problem again.

I think first, you should see a vet about it, because your pup might need some antibiotics to get over the initial infection. The vet might be able to prescribe something to put on it as well.
You are already doing good by keeping it clean.

I think a lot of Goldens have that problem with that lower lip wrinkle, all that helps seems to be just keeping it clean. I personally think, surgery is a bit extreme for that.

My Cocker has that problem per our vet, we use hydrogen peroxide and a triple antibiotic ointment. This has always cleared it up, yet for her it does re-occur a few times a year. I have just decided that I am going to do this on a regular basis even if it isn't infected to keep it from happening again.

Hydrogen peroxide should only be used in a mix of 50% water and 50% hydrogen peroxide. Straight hydrogen peroxide will kill the cells and delay healing.
