When incontinence is an issue, keeping your skin healthy can be a challenge. The risk of infection could significantly increase when subpar undergarments are used causing extended exposure to bacterial laden waste. In addition, continued use of soap and water may be irritating to skin. This is why it is essential to use specified cleansing creams and protective ointments to support skin health.
A study by researchers at the University of Minnesota School of Nursing, Minneapolis, published in Ostomy Wound Management stated that,
Incontinence-associated dermatitis is a risk in nursing home residents, especially those with fecal incontinence. These findings suggest that the rate and severity of incontinence-associated dermatitis are low with close monitoring and use of a defined skin care regimen that includes a pH-balanced cleanser and moisture barrier.
CWI’s recommended skin care products contain high quality ingredients with healing vitamins and minerals for a full spectrum skin application.
Keeping skin clean and safe from bacteria goes beyond harsh soaps, wipes and other detergent heavy products which could potentially result in skin irritation.
The literary review, ‘Prevention and treatment of incontinence-associated dermatitis’ published in DARE (Database of Abstracts of Reviews of Effects - Quality Assessed Reviews) stated,
Two studies (one RCT [randomized controlled trial] and one cross-over study) found skin cleansers were more effective than soap and water in preventing incontinence-related skin problems. Four studies (including one RCT) found reduced skin erythema with the combined use of a perineal skin cleanser and a skin protectant compared to controls.
