When using an incontinence pad
When using pads or diapers, it is very important to replace them once they have absorbed urine. Keeping a soaked pad in contact with your skin can lead to rash and irritation. Take the pad out or the diaper off, thoroughly clean and dry your skin, then put on a new pad.
Tips for using incontinence pads
- Always use the pads which are most suitable for the needs of the person you are caring for, and make sure that they are fitted correctly.
- Use fitted underwear to secure incontinence pads. Loose underwear will allow the pad to shift, which will lead to leakage.
Consult a Healthcare Professional if the person you are caring for has eczema or psoriasis or is prone to other conditions that affect their skin.
Take note the condition of the skin whilst using incontinence pads and if this changes e.g. becomes red, sore or broken consult a healthcare professional.
Wash your hands before and after changing the pad.
Don’t apply ointments or creams unless advised by a Healthcare Professional.
Don’t use talcum powder on sensitive areas, it can cause friction which may damage the skin and also affect how well the pad works.
Don’t wear more than one pad at a time
