My skin’s recently become damaged and painful due to incontinence I think. It appears to be a rash and looks unsightly. I have tried washing it with soap over and over again and have put sudocrem on but nothing has soothed it. I’ve had incontinence for a few months due to severe MS..I don’t want to show anyone this. Has anyone experienced this and what do I do?
You need to invest in some proper skin care products. Soap can make your skin more damaged and irritated, so avoid this. Cleansing products for incontinence leave the skin clean and soft without irritation, and are popular soap and water alternatives. The Conti Continence Care Wipes are popular moist cleansing wipes.
You also need a barrier cream, which forms a physical barrier between the skin and any contaminants. This prevents the skin from irritation. I would recommend the iD Care Zinc Oxide Ointment as a reliable barrier cream.
If the irritation is bad, I would definitely visit a Doctor to ensure your skin has developed no further problems.
Let me know if you would like more products recommending.
