How To Use NO-STING SKIN-PREP™ Spray For Sensitive Skin Around Wounds and Stomas
Smith & Nephew recently introduced a new "no sting" product for sensitive skin in spray form. To accompany the No-Sting Skin Prep Wipes, they have also introduced the No-Sting Skin Prep Spray in a 28 mL pump spray bottle. The formula protects skin from the effects of incontinence and friction, is quick drying and will last up to four days. Commonly used to protect skin from urinary/fecal incontinence, bodily fluids, adhesive trauma, and frictional forces, this will likely be a very popular ostomy and wound care accessory. Comments from the Smith & Nephew press release below describe clinical use of it.
Heidi Hogue, RN, BScN, Director of the Wound Healing Institute of Southeast Arkansas said, "I've been using the NO-STING SKIN-PREP Spray, and the product has exceeded my expectations. I've seen the product perform well when used with Negative Pressure Wound Therapy. I also use it around the periwound areas of pressure, venous and diabetic foot ulcers. NO-STING SKIN PREP Spray is easy to use and it helps me help my patients by preventing and reducing irritation to the skin, and reducing the risk of skin trauma."
"Our new NO-STING SKIN-PREP Spray enhances patient comfort because it is conformable, protects the skin from incontinence and friction, and won't irritate damaged skin," said Tom Dugan, President of North American Wound Management. "For the caregiver, the fast drying spray offers quick and easy application and long lasting products save time and money. NO-STING SKIN PREP Spray can help protect vulnerable skin, reducing the risk of costly infections. The addition of NO-STING SKIN-PREP Spray to our liquid film-forming dressing line and our broad portfolio of trusted wound care brands reflects our commitment to providing solutions that promote positive patient outcomes and cost effective patient care."
