Millions of people live with incontinence, but it doesn’t have to interfere with your quality of life. By making just a few adjustments, you can enjoy normal activities and keep inconvenience to a minimum. One such adjustment is taking good care of your skin. Incontinence that requires you to wear adult nappies or other products can be irritating to the skin, causing a number of problems such as:
What You Can Do
Fortunately, there are steps you can take to prevent or minimise skin problems. For starters, you should avoid excessive skin wetness by changing adult nappies as soon as soiling occurs. You should also use gentle wet wipes formulated specifically for adult incontinence, such as Aloe Vera Cleansing Wet Wipes. A barrier ointment such as a diaper rash cream can minimise skin contact with urine and faeces, and eating a healthy diet and drinking plenty of water can enhance overall health and help maintain skin integrity.
It’s also important to keep the skin dry as much as possible. When you purchase adult nappies in Australia, make sure you’re buying medical grade products that offer maximum protection appropriate to your individual level of incontinence. For example, our Allusive Slip Brief is easy for the user or carer to apply, even when the incontinent person has little or no mobility. They are made with super-absorbent materials that are fast acting and capable of dispersing large amounts of liquids away from the skin, thus ensuring that sensitive areas stay dry and clean.
