I am in need of allergenic products as i tend to be allergic to most incontinence products. I suffer with bladder incontinence and now stuck what to use as the pads i have now are starting to give me a rash. Can anyone send a link or something to help
There is a range called the Cottons Comfort Range, which includes incontinence pads designed specially for sensitive skin. You can shop the range here.
It is really important to have a good skincare regime in place, especially if you have incontinence. Do you have a skin routine?
In people with urinary incontinence, the urea in urine can change the skin environment, encouraging bacteria to grow. The skin then loses it’s natural barrier against infection. You are then more vulnerable to a variety of threats, including incontinence-associated dermatitis and pressure ulcers.
A skincare routine helps to prevent the occurrence of incontinence-associated dermatitis; this should include gentle cleansing, application of a moisturizer and the use of a barrier cream.
Let me know if you would like any recommendations to where you can purchase skin care products.
