Heat Rash and Incontinence: How to Prevent Incontinence-Associated Heat Rash

The summer can be a time for fun, filled with outdoor activities and get-togethers. Unfortunately, the hot temperatures also often present individuals who suffer from incontinence and wear incontinence products like adult diapers with additional challenges. Incontinence patients may find that their intertrigo, or sweat rash, worsens during the summer. To help prevent sweat rash in the groin area and to help manage intertrigo smell, CWI Medical has sweat rash creams and perineal cleansers.

How to Prevent Incontinence-Associated Heat Rash Incontinence care requires special attention to particularly sensitive areas in the body, including the perineal area. Continually cleansing this area with soap and water may over dry and irritate the skin, potentially leading to further complications later on. It is important to let the perineal area air out and consider changing adult diapers more frequently, especially in the summer months. Additionally, some individuals find that using specific cleansing wipes, like these Tranquility Cleansing Wipes,  can be useful for disinfecting the body and providing a rinse-free cleanup. 

In addition to letting the perineal area air out and changing diapers more frequently, we recommend using a perineal cleanser and cream for additional support. CWI Medial offers several products that may help alleviate the discomfort associated with sweat rash and incontinence products. The  3-N-1 Cleansing Foam from DermaRite is a no-rinse solution that combines a perineal cleanser with a shampoo and body wash. This is deal for bed-confined patients, individuals who cannot cleanse themselves, or those who are looking for a quick, gentle, and easy-to-use wash.

The TENA® Cleansing Cream is also effective for helping to protect and soothe the irritated skin that comes from sweat rash due to incontinence. This cleansing cream for the perineal area gently cleanses, moisturizes, and soothes vulnerable skin like the perineum without irritating it. This is also a 3-in-1 product that requires no rinsing, making it ideal for continence care.

With incontinence, the keys to staying comfortable in the summer or any time of year are to make sure that you have the maximum protection, proper size, and all of the necessary supplies. Incontinence care varies for everyone. Some people may require bladder control pads while others might need incontinence pail liners.  The good news is the CWI Medical has everything you need to keep your skin in its best condition despite having incontinence. We offer a wide selection of medical supplies and health care products for many different conditions and would be glad to help you find the solutions you need.
