This works for me. I am not a professional. I am a patient and sufferer of Intertrigo and I wanted to share what has taken me many years to help ease some of my suffering.
I suffer from Intertrigo and this is my ritual at shower time.
Items you will need:
Body wash that works for your sensitive skin.
Soft cotton fabric or a diaper.
I take the Hibiclens and body wash and put it on the wet cloth and put it under my apron and slide it back and forth gently.
If you are showering during a break out then DO NOT slide the material back and forth. Just let it sit there for a bit while you finish showering the rest of your body.
The temperature of the water should be just tepid like you would for an infant. Rinse yourself thoroughly. Do not dry with a towel ever.
I have a chair set up in my room with my hair dryer. I dry my entire body with the cool air setting until I am totally dry.
If you don't think you are totally dry then wait a few minutes before doing this next step.
Once I am totally dry I take a thin layer of Silver Solution under my apron and under my breasts. Get dressed in cotton undergarments and you are ready to go on with your day.
If your skin is oozing and you are in pain GO TO SEE YOUR HEALTH PROVIDER and follow their directions.
I've been suffering with this for many years and finally I have something that works for me. So I wanted to share it with those suffering like me.
