Diaper rash (diaper dermatitis) is a skin problem caused by the skin staying wet, rubbing from the brief, and contact with chemicals in the urine and stool. The skin may look red, raw, scalded, or burned.
The WellnessBrief® fully absorbs the liquid and pulls it away from the skin thereby always keeping you dry.
● An adult may develop a rash in the genital area if he or she cannot wash the genital area well. If an adult does not have complete bowel or bladder control (incontinence), he or she may use incontinence briefs.
● The skin may blister or peel in severe cases of diaper rash, leaving raw areas that may bleed or ooze fluid. A diaper rash that becomes raw, oozes fluid, or bleeds is harder to treat. Fungal or bacterial infections may be the cause of a severe diaper rash.
The most common causes of diaper rash include:
● Not changing a wet or dirty diaper often enough. The skin becomes irritated from contact with urine and stool, particularly when diarrhea is present.
A diaper rash may also be a sign of abuse or neglect:
● If a friend or family member of yours is currently under the care of a nurse or long term facility tell them about the WellnessBrief® and how they could significantly improve their care and simultaniously reduce their costs.
Only 3 changes a day and you will reduce the risk of the above infections.
