|Gee, I have hairless Cresteds and their problem is not too oily, it is LACK of enough skin oils to the extent that we have to apply skin lotions on an almost daily basis. I haven't heard of oily being an issue.
At any rate, as I understand it, when blackheads or other skin issues are a problem frequent baths with kerolux shampoo are recommended. I haven't had these issues because, as I said, my guys have dry skin.
I do shave the areas with sparse hair just because it looks better, and keep the legs and crest and tail long.
Without knowing this dog's history, perhaps his previous diet is responsible for the oily skin? If this is the case, again, frequent baths and a proper diet should help.
