Help for Skin Irritations and Break Downs

Having skin breaks downs, bed sores or irritations from the result of urinary and fecal incontinence can seriously impact the quality of life of our senior population.  Recently, I re-discovered an eighty year old product from an exhibit at the 2012 National Home Care Conference.

Calmoseptine Ointment is an excellent FDA approved over the counter product that can be found at your local drugstore.  The product is priced under $10.00 and comes in a tube or ointment jar.  The relatively odor less ointment is colored light rose which makes it easy to see to spread.  The ointment provides a physical moisture barrier, keeping feces, urine and wound drainage from intact and injured skin.  In addition, the mild antiseptic ingredients may prevent secondary bacterial infections of the skin over a large area of skin.

Since its introduction over 80 years ago, clinicians have recommended Calmoseptine Ointment for diaper rash and a variety of adult skin irritations.  Visit the website of for additional information.
