Uses for DermaGuard
Health Care Workers and Patients
The non-occlusive DermaGuard barrier helps to prevent the penetration of the skin by irritants that can cause inflammation, discomfort, skin breakdown and allergic reactions.
DermaGuard actively repels urine, faeces, saliva and digestive fluids. DermaGuard is an effective defense against blood borne pathogens, and while we don't recommend it as the only defense, it offers the user another protective layer in the event of leakage and accidental exposure.
DermaGuard for incontinence care... Most conventional skin protection products are all to easily transported to the incontinence pad itself. Not only is this wasteful, but it can also diminish the absorbent efficiency of the pad. In contrast, DermaGuard is very effective in only small quantities and is quickly absorbed by the skin providing maximum protection for the patient and allowing the pad to retain its absorbency.
DermaGuard for Stoma care... DermaGuard does not interfere with the adhesive properties of such devices and, therefore, the worries of skin irritation are minimised while not interfering with the devices purpose.
DermaGuard for wound care... Because it is thoroughly and rapidly absorbed into the skin, DermaGuard does not interfere with the adhesive properties of dressings. Patients with sensitive skin need not fear the potential discomfort and irritation from such dressings.
DermaGuard for irritation from saliva...Patients prone to drooling and excessive salivation may experience raw and sensitive skin around the mouth area. DermaGuard will aid in the healing and prevention of further irritation.
DermaGuard for irritation from perspiration... Many elderly patients are prone to developing soreness and redness caused by perspiration under and around the breasts, genitalia and skin folds. Since DermaGuard allows the skin to "breathe" normally while still blocking irritants, this condition is rapidly eased.
DermaGuard for bed sores... DermaGuard actively helps prevent and aid in the natural healing process of bed sores and the associated problems of skin irritation and breakdown. Those people confined in bed will find DermaGuard absorbs into the skin rapidly and does not immediately rub off into clothing and bed linens.
DermaGuard for irritation from braces and support stockings... The constant contact of the skin by such devices can cause irritation, redness and general skin breakdown. With DermaGuard as an active barrier, the common side effects of such necessities can be greatly diminished while generally enhancing the over all quality of the skin.
DermaGuard for dry skin... Patients with excessively dry skin, especially diabetics and heart patients, can benefit from the protective qualities of DermaGuard and it's rich moisturisers.
DermaGuard for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)... People who suffer from OCD, especially those prone to frequent hand washing and rubbing, can use DermaGuard to greatly diminish the problems associated with this condition including dehydration and raw, red, irritated sore skin.
