What is Adult Urinary Dermatitis (AUD)?
Sore skin, around the bottom or genitals, in adults who suffer with incontinence is medically known as adult urinary dermatitis (AUD) or incontinence associated with dermatitis (IAD).
Causes of adult urinary dermatitis
It is caused by irritants such as urine or faeces in contact with the skin for prolonged periods.
You are looking for red or inflamed skin that can be sore to the touch, in and around the bottom and genital area of adults who suffer with incontinence. As with all skin irritations left untreated, it can become infected as the skin is damaged. It can make the sufferer feel uncomfortable, which might affect their mood making them grumpy and irritated.
Drapolene® Cream soothes, treats and prevents sore skin caused by incontinence. It also forms a barrier to protect the delicate skin around the bottom and genitals from external irritants such as wee or poo.
