Dogs paw pads are VERY raw- can I use Corona ointment?

Hey guys, I have a Great Pyrenees that I adopted a few months ago. He's almost 4. He has very sensitive skin I've noticed.
Well he wouldn't go outside this morning. He has a habit of that occasionally, and I've noticed it's always for a good reason-he's a smart boy.
I just noticed that in between his paw pads is VERY red, even the fur; he's been bleeding quite obviously. I've cleaned it out with hydrogen peroxide and he's now outside FINALLY going to the bathroom. I plan on going to the store in a bit and getting some vetwrap, gauze, and some type of cleaning/healing solution. I would use my Vetricyn, but that is at the barn and barn is a 30 minute drive, I'm not the one driving. Can I use Corona ointment? Is there any other solution/ointment that would work the best? Please help!!

Is he chewing on them? That's a common area for food allergies to manifest themselves too. You can use corona, won't hurt him. Oddly enough a little butt paste would work well too if its not infected.
If it continues there is a product called neopredf powder that we used to carry at the clinic that did wonders for those wet feet when they were yeasty.
If he has hair between his pads then as a part of his grooming I would keep them shaved on the underside.

Thank you!! I've been considering shaving the hair, I was thinking that would help. His breed is VERY hairy.

I bought some more vetericyn and am treating it with that, then gauze, then vet wrap. He's finally leaving them alone with the vet wrap on, thankfully! It's QUITE a hassle doing it though, he takes off through the house.

Usually if the space between the pads is red it's because of some sort of allergy.

Since I've adopted him he's been on 2 different foods. I slowly switched him to what my others were on(cannot remember the name for the life of me), then about a week ago I slowly switched him to potionpaks chickenmeal and brown rice by smartpak.

Last night I ordered him Fromm grain-free pork and peas. It contains no grain and no chicken. I'm hoping this will help!
