How to Avoid Adult Diaper Rash When Wearing Incontinence Undergarments

Protective undergarments can be a lifesaver when you or someone you love suffers from incontinence. Urine can stain clothing and furnishings, and the odor is incredibly difficult to remove. Additionally, and perhaps even more concerning, the anxiety associated with the condition is considerable. Imagine being afraid to go anywhere because you were concerned that you may experience leakage and damage others property.

The development and use of high quality protective undergarments has been life changing for many affected by this condition. Simply wearing them provides individuals the freedom to leave their homes, go about their business and not worry about embarrassing and damaging accidents.

That said, there are some valid concerns that those who utilize these items face. One of the most often experienced is adult diaper rash. Caused by friction and rubbing of the skin, this can be uncomfortable. 

Steps To Help Avoid Adult Diaper Rash

Recognizing that this is a possibility, those who wear protective undergarments can take steps to avoid this condition. First, changing the undergarments frequently. This is perhaps the best action you can take. You know what they say, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.  Sitting in wet clothing increases the chances of irritation and adult diaper rash. You need to stay clean and dry. 

Additionally, you want to be sure that the undergarments you are wearing fit appropriately.  Most manufacturers provide size guides that can help you choose correctly. You may need to try different brands to find the one that works best for you.

Make sure to keep your skin clean and well-hydrated, with an appropriate soap and moisturizer.  You want to prevent dryness.  Dry skin can crack and become infected when it comes in contact with urine.

Finally, it is important to give your skin some time to breathe, without wearing protective garments. Air can be particularly healing and it helps your body remain dry and fresh. If you are concerned about possible damage to furniture during this time, take advantage of the host of protective products (mattress pads, chair covers, blankets, etc) available on the market today.  Many of these can be machine washed and dried and are extremely durable - they can be used over and over again.

Adult diapers and protective undergarments are critical apparel for a significant portion of the population: incontinence does not discriminate and individuals of all ages can be impacted by it.  Making sure you choose the appropriate garment and practicing good hygiene can help avoid skin conditions including adult diaper rash.
