Tips on Making an Adult Diaper Rash Situation Better with Barrier Gels
With the several benefits that adult diapers provide, they also bring along a common, but the painful problem- Diaper rashes. Adult Diaper Rashes are as common as they are in children who wear diapers. These rashes cause discomfort, irritation, pain and redness of the skin around the diaper area. The initial symptoms in adults are the same as symptoms in children, which start from small, pink patches on the affected area and advance to big patches of red that are very hurtful.
The major cause of diaper rash is wetness, which can be the result of excess moisture, sweating and incontinence. The dampness in the diaper area or between the skin folds gives a warm, moist environment for yeast and bacteria to breed, which results in infections.
When it comes to preventing or treating diaper rashes, it is advisable not to use any overly fragrant or perfumed products. Also, it is important to wear breathable, loose clothing to allow the air to pass. A unique solution can also be to use a diaper that is comfortable in order to regulate the airflow.
Adult Diaper Rashes can be a cause of great discomfort and inconvenience, and thus there are some basic precautions that can be taken to prevent them.
Firstly, it is very important to change diapers frequently or as soon as they become wet.
Secondly, rinse the diaper area with lukewarm water & soap, a few times a day. Make sure to wash off the soap properly after changing your diaper or after a bath.
Lastly, pat the skin with a soft towel instead of rubbing it dry and wear a clean, dry diaper after this.
Another very important factor in dealing with adult diaper rash is not compromising the quality of the diaper. The choice of the diaper has a big role to play in preventing rashes and having normal, healthy skin.
Soreze Adult Diaper Rash Gel is India’s first of its kind silicon-based barrier gel blended with essential oils, which forms a barrier film on rash-prone skin like a ‘second skin’. The gel forms a protective, water-repellent barrier within 30 seconds of application and continues its action for up to 8 hours. This inhibits direct contact of fragile skin with diapers and harmful chemicals of urine, moisture and faeces, thereby lowering friction and preventing rashes.
It is important to choose preservative and chemical-free adult diaper rash gels like Soreze Adult Diaper Rash Gel, to eliminate the possibility of bacterial or fungal infections. The ingredients and natural essential oils used in Soreze Adult Diaper Rash Gel have healing properties that provide relief from redness, itching & pain and soothe the skin.
In most cases, a diaper rash can be treated at home through special diaper rash ointments like Soreze Adult Diaper Rash Gel. Clean the area with a soft cloth and soap & warm water. Apply the gel in small quantities to the affected area 2-3 times a day or before putting on a new diaper.
It is also a good idea to leave the area without a diaper for a few minutes every day to heal the rash. It may be embarrassing for our loved ones to talk about intimate issues like adult diaper rashes with us. However, if avoided, these may lead to serious medical conditions like skin damage and other health complications. Thus, it is important that we communicate about it with our elders and initiate finding solutions to those problems.
