Incontinence-associated dermatitis (IAD) relates to skin breakdown from exposure to urine or faeces, and its management involves implementation of structured skin care regimens that incorporate use of appropriate skin barrier products to protect the skin from exposure to moisture and irritants. Medi Derma-Pro Foam & Spray Cleanser and Medi Derma-Pro Skin Protectant Ointment are recent additions to the Total Barrier Protection™ (Medicareplus International) range indicated for management of moderate-to-severe IAD and other moisture-associated skin damage. This article discusses a series of case studies and product evaluations performed to determine clinical outcomes and clinician feedback based on use of the Medi Derma-Pro skin barrier products to manage IAD. Results showed improvements to patients’ skin condition following use of Medi Derma-Pro, and the cleanser and skin protectant ointment were considered better than or the same as the most equivalent products on the market.
