I for one suffer a great deal of the time from diaper rash. I have always just thought that the only way that I could treat it was to use powder and oil, but for some reason no matter how much I use it never seems to do the trick. I was browsing the internet and I came across this article on how to treat adult diaper rash, so I thought I would share some of the important things that it mentioned.

“You should find a diaper that fits snuggly and comfortably without
being too tight. You should additionally be sure to change the diaper
frequently when wet to avoid prolonged exposure to acidic urine.”
– I think this is very important because at one point I bought some small diapers figuring that I could fit in them and that they would look very cute. Well, instead they did fit but so tight that it started not only irritating me as I would walk but it also did cause my to have increased diaper rash.  I guess I never really thought that a diaper being too tight could do this, but you for sure what to find a diaper that fits well and tight! I am also bad about changing enough. Especially while I am at work I tend to sit in my diaper sometimes almost all day until I am on the verge of leaking or have already leaked, so recently I have begun bringing several changes to work with me in order to be able to change more frequently and help to avoid these kinds of things.

“Disposable diapers are much more absorptive than cloth diapers, which
usually results in less moisture being trapped on the skin.”
– Now I for one have never tried cloth diaper, I have always worn disposable so I am not very good at knowing anything about this but thought I would post this in case any of you do! The main concern with the cloth diapers is that most people who wear them also wear plastic pants which increases the temperature within the diaper which then become a breading ground for bacteria.

Anyways, those are just some of my thoughts on this article that I found helpful and hopefully some of you will too!

    I never have a rash problem. I wear abriform or dry 24/7 that last 10 or 12 hours most days. Before I change I take a 1 liter bottle of warm water and pour it in, about a 1/3 in thr front a 1/3 in the back, then slowly the final 1/3 in the front again. Then take the diaper off and dry off completely and put on a dry diaper. it’s like having a shower and 2 baths a day. Never have a problem.
    I hope this helps.
    I had kidney stones at 25, and had no control for several months. Then several years later scar tissue built up and I had surgery and no control for almost a year. The third surgery it took another year to regain control. The doctor said he was going to try somethin different so the scar tissue would not return and the used a laser in 6 places around the tube I guess you’d call it. I don’t know what happened, maybe nerve damage, but I’ve had no control for 6 years now. He doesn’t think it will ever get better, so I’ve had to make the best of it.
    Good luck to all of you.
