Popular skin care treatments like protective film and powders are useful as prophylactic steps to safeguard the integrity of the skin. When one applies them to the skin, protective films and powders create a barrier that shields the epidermis from moisture and friction. Patients’ skin discomfort is frequently brought on by moisture from incontinence. The skin will respond and itch as soon as it comes into contact with pee or feces.
Moisture from incontinence combined with skin friction frequently results in severe rashes, ulcers, and the possibility of infection. For both private usage and in settings, professional medical care is available. Thus, Riteway Medical provides a variety of shielding films and powders to aid in preventing such skin issues.
