Protecting Skin Is An Important Part Of Incontinence Solutions

There are as many incontinence products—from adult liners to disposable briefs, from light absorbencies to overnight diapers—as there are causes of urinary incontinence. But containing liquid is only part of the solution. Your skin needs to be protected with incontinence aids to prevent other medical issues.

Whether you’re managing urge incontinence or overactive bladder, exposure to the waste products of incontinence puts skin at risk. Incontinence solutions include not just using absorbent incontinence products, but also the right skin care products to prevent skin damage, discomfort and pain, all of which impact quality of life. Research has found that replacing soap-and-water cleansing (which strips skin of natural protective oils) with a no-rinse cleanser and a barrier product offers the protection skin needs and actually takes less time and caregiver effort. Barrier products include barrier creams, ointments, pastes and films. The best incontinence products counteract pH changes caused by incontinence, make cleansing easier, eliminate germs and limit skin’s exposure to the irritants in urinary and fecal matter. This level of skin care is particularly important for older people whose skin is naturally less resilient, more prone to damage and slower to heal.
