I have been experiencing stress incontinence after pregnancy, and have recently been having irritated skin due to leaks. Is it really worth investing in skin care products? Or should I just wash more? If someone has any recommendations that actually work, this would be helpful
Soap and water can further irritate the skin, and can easily dry out the skin that is in contact with urine. You do need to invest in skin care products, as these are designed to cleanse the skin and provide a protective barrier.
You need to use some kind of cleansing product. Wipes, creams and foams all work for skin cleansing.
I would recommend the TENA Wash Cream.
For a barrier cream, iD Care Barrier Cream is very effective.
