Preventing and Treating Rashes Due to Incontinence Takes Persistence

OldCouple_shutterstock_85008562We often concentrate on preventing leaks and household disasters when we talk about incontinence. Another major issue with incontinence is that urine and feces are both hard on the skin. Premium incontinence products can help prevent a good deal of irritation by quickly wicking moisture away from the skin (Egosan products also have hypoallergenic, aloe-infused linings). However, soaked diaper briefs or those coated with feces can still cause issues. A mild rash can often be cleared up quickly but severe rashes with blisters and pus need a whole new level of care. 

Read more on Egosan's blog about rashes, their causes, and suggested treatments as well as how diaper brief construction matters:
