Incontinence and Skin


Have the freedom to talk about incontinence

Incontinence can be uncomfortable and embarrassing, and if you’re one of the millions of people in the UK who suffer from incontinence, you’ll know that it can also cause sore, chapped skin.

When it’s caused by incontinence, sore skin is known as incontinence associated dermatitis (IAD). It can make the best things about life - like playing with grandchildren, or just pottering in the garden - much more difficult to enjoy.

Nothing preventable should take the joy out of your life, including IAD.


That’s exactly why 3M™ Cavilon™ Barrier Cream was created

Cavilon barrier cream is an effective, clinically proven way to prevent IAD. It creates an invisible, durable barrier over your
skin – protecting it from damage caused by prolonged contact with urine and faeces.

Apply in pea sized amounts twice a day to cover the area of sore skin and you’ll be free to carry on your daily routine. Cavilon barrier cream resists wash off when you take a shower or bath.

This means your skin will stay protected and you can keep doing the things that make life worth living.

You’re not alone – Talk to your district nurse or doctor

If you think you might be suffering from IAD, you should have a chat with your district nurse or doctor. They’ll be able to offer professional support and may refer you to a continence advisor.

While you might be reluctant to ask for help, the NHS estimates that between three and six million people are affected by incontinence every year. It’s the sort of thing your district nurse or doctor treats regularly. So there’s no need to feel embarrassed - make an appointment today.
