Some others you may want to try include the 3M Cavilon No-Sting barrier wipes, Webcol (Preppies) wipes, Safe-N-Simple Skin Barrier Wipes, Convatec AllKare barrier wipes, Medline SurePrep wipes, and Sensi-Care Sting-Free barrier wipe.

    John, you might also try the use of a (reusable) Posey (826550) Sheath Holder. I have used these for problems with retraction for my clients for many years.

    Yes, the spray is fine, although may be more expensive, and harder to keep it just in the area you want to apply it (can get onto your pubic hair, etc.). I prefer the sprays for covering large areas such as the buttocks or thighs for those who have urine incontinence or diarrhea, and the wipes for smaller areas such as under condom catheters or ostomy appliances, or tape for dressings.

    I switched to the Spirit 3 about 6 months ago from years of using the Coloplast Freedom Clear. In combination with skin prep they seem to be working well.

    Have used the 3M Cavilon in my practice for many years, and prefer it.

    agree that Cavilon is good but it is pricey. If folks haven't already give Skin Tac a try. Cheaper and i actually thinks works better.
