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.
