Skin moisturizers are nourishing creams that soften skin to help repair and prevent dryness. Excessive dryness can cause itching, flaking, and irritation. Moisturizing lotion for dry skin is also ideal for those who are at risk of skin breakdown. Ingredients like aloe vera, vitamin E, and AHA all help slough off dry skin and replenish dehydrated skin. Express Medical Supply offers lotions that do not interfere with adhesives used on the skin and that are suitable to use with latex gloves. We also sell skin creams that relieve pain, fade age spots, and reduce bumps associated with Keratosis Pilaris.
Skin barrier creams are designed to create a protective layer on the skin to shield it from moisture and contaminants. Many of the creams we carry contain zinc as an active ingredient, which helps cells regenerate and speeds healing. This barrier lotion can be used on rashes or irritated skin to promote healthy healing. Healing ointments like Calmoseptine can be used on people of all ages to treat ailments such as diaper rash, burns, scrapes, and more. 3M Cavilon barrier film protects the skin from irritation due to incontinence. This cream is compatible with medical tape adhesives and resists wash off.
Using a no rinse skin cleanser is another way to keep your skin in healthy condition. It cleans the skin surface while also retaining moisture. They are ideal for those with limited mobility or for people who want a quick, waterless bathing solution. The cleansers are pH balanced and come in spray, foam, or cream format. We carry formulas that are specially designed for incontinence care as well as sensitive or at-risk skin. Incontinence cleansers from Coloplast do not contain fragrance or perfume, which makes them ideal for perineal use. All of these no rinse products are gentle enough to be used on a daily basis.
Express Medical Supply also sells moisturizing body wash that doubles as shampoo. This 2-in-1 product is a waterless solution for those who can not bathe traditionally. The body washe and shampoo is a pH balanced solution that soothes and deodorizes the skin. This helps prevent transepidermal water loss, which can dehydrate the skin. They are available in a foaming wash or a spray format and are ideal for everyday use. We also carry a shampoo cap with a cleansing solution built in for easy washing.
If you suffer from athlete's foot, ringworm, or other topical skin infections, antifungal products can help treat the problem. The Coloplast Baza antifungal cream works by forming a zinc oxide moisture barrier. This creates a shield to fight the infection, but does not dry out the skin. An antifunal powder is also available, which treats skin infection caused by yeast. This mess-free powder is an alternative to a cream formula, depending on your preference. If you are experiencing irritation around the the nails or cuticles, Miracure is a brush-on treatment that can help stop fungus growth.
