Hello lisaw, here is some advice from one of our helpline nurses:
It is helpful to use/important to use the same product line where possible.Molicare Skin Protect is a very good range of products for protection as well as assisting in healing as it has a skin Ph which is alkaline.Skin Protect foam is used to assist in removing build up of other products used.It is easy to use the spray foam, spray & leave for approximately 5 minutes before gently wiping using the Molicare wipes.Then use Skin Barrier Cream If there is infection then a swab would be needed & an appropriate antibiotic be used.Molicare disposable underwear should be used for the same reason as skin Ph alkaline.Samples of skin protection can be requested from Molicare.
NB: Sudocream should NEVER be applied thickly & if used it should be removed prior to further application, a thin application only as the product protects by absorbing into the skin & putting a protective layer over skin.
Shaving cream can be used in certain circumstances, like condom/urodome drainage as it can help remove adhesive build up between application.
Do not use soap as it is acidic & can irritate the skin.
QV wash, or QV gentle wash for washing/showering.
Please call the NCHL for further advice on 1800 33 00 66.
