Caring for Your Skin When You Have Incontinence

May 14, 2019

It's important to properly care for your skin when you have incontinence. Most people assume that regular cleansing with soap and water will do the job. However, a better option for daily personal care are special non-drying cleansers formulated to better remove urine and stool.

A good hygiene routine that is specially designed for delicate skin can help prevent skin irritation and infection. In addition to physical benefits, a soothing incontinence care routine can help you or a loved one feel clean, comfortable, refreshed, and healthy while also supporting confidence, independence, and overall quality of life.

Here are a few products that your will find helpful for the daily cleansing routine for individuals dealing with incontinence:

  • Wet Wipes. These handy, disposable wipes use a non-irritating cleanser that gently dissolves irritants and moistens skin.
  • Perineal Cleanser. This product is a soap-less, non-irritating cleanser that gently dissolves and removes feces and urine from the skin. Many options also contain deodorizers in their formulas. These cleansers also re-moisturize as they cleanse skin for gentle, continued comfort. There are also no dyes or fragrances that irritate the skin.
  • Barrier Cream/Ointment. Barrier creams are designed to protect the skin from irritation caused by stool, urine, or excessive moisture. This option provides an effective barrier that seals out moisture, and contains emollients to moisturize and is non-sensitizing and fragrance free. Especially effective for soothing red, sore or irritated skin from urine burns, diaper rash, feces, and other irritants.
