Hello,my goat Bruno was born with a crooked neck ,and he is 11 mo. old now. He does very well,but as he has grown,his neck is so bent that his skin under that side gets no air to it and is getting wax build up. I don't know what to clean it with,i am afraid to hurt him with alcohol,etc. When i try to look at it,he acts like it is itchy and uncomfortable. Can anyone help me?
Thank you.

Washing him with a mild soap and drying the area very well helps with the natural secretions that occur, once dry you can use a bit of cornstarch as a powder to help absorb excess moisture. You may need to do this every 2-3 days to ensure he tolerates the powder.

Thank you everyone, I really appreciate your help. Sounds really simple to do- I was worrying so much I was making it more complicated than it is! I read Baby Girl's story when I first got Bruno,as i was scouring the internet for anything about goats with crooked necks -very helpful reading about her, thank you all again, Dorcy.
