Incontinence Care: Keeping Skin Healthy
When caring for skin exposed to urine or feces, remove wet or soiled garments as quickly as possible and gently clean the area. Adult disposable washcloths are made to gently cleanse wet or soiled skin without irritation. These generous-sized washcloths contain aloe vera to soothe and protect irritated skin. No rinsing is required. Also available are flushable wipes with skin-protective vitamin E and aloe vera. These wipes come in a convenient pack you can carry with you almost anywhere. Plus, they're safe to flush.
Natural Incontinence Solutions
Prefer a natural approach to cleansing? Pre-moistened, natural adult disposable washcloths make cleansing soiled skin quick and easy. Each cloth soothes skin with botanicals like chamomile and aloe vera along with the antioxidant benefits of vitamin E. These natural washcloths are free of chlorine, latex, alcohol and added fragrance. They are ideal for sensitive skin.
Protecting Skin Against Moisture
After cleansing, many doctors recommend applying a barrier cream or ointment made for diaper rash to protect skin against contact with urine and feces. Diaper rash and all-purpose skin care ointment formulated with ingredients like lanolin and petrolatum help soothe irritated skin and protect it with an invisible layer of moisture.
Also available are ointments formulated with menthol and zinc oxide. Zinc oxide acts as a barrier that helps protect skin against moisture and chemicals. You can apply a barrier ointment after each cleansing, up to three or four times a day. Lanolin, zinc oxide and petrolatum are all ingredients doctors often recommend for soothing and protecting irritated skin.
For a quick and easy solution, consider adult incontinence rash spray. These products are formulated to provide an instant moisture barrier. Enriched with ingredients like aloe vera, Shea butter and vitamin E, the sprays provide a moisturizing treat for irritated skin.
Barrier cream cloths combine cleansing and barrier protection into one easy step. Each cloth is enriched with dimethicone, an ingredient that forms an invisible barrier against wetness. These easy-to-use cloths save time and are less messy than most barrier creams. Each cloth is pre-moistened and disposable for maximum convenience.
Relieving Skin Irritation, Infection and Odor
Areas exposed to moisture can become infected with fungi. Antifungal creams with the active ingredient miconazole nitrate may help areas infected with fungi heal. If you think you have a fungal infection, check with your doctor first to be sure. Then ask if a miconazole antifungal cream is right for you.
To tackle lingering odors, keep adult incontinence odor spray on hand. Spray it on your body or onto almost any fabric to neutralize odors. It comes in an easy-to-use container you can carry anywhere.
