Treating Adult Diaper Rash

How to Treat Diaper Rash in an Adult
While it is easy to discuss treatment options for a baby's diaper rash, it is taboo to discuss this problem in an adult. Because of this, it is hard to find proper information. Look no further.

True, getting help for adult diaper rash can be humiliating. I remember having a rash so severe I went to a dermatologist about it. It was a mortifying experience. I am very incontinent so I kept my diaper on until the doctor wanted to see the rash. Checking my rash and putting my diaper back on was an adventure in embarassment. I never have had someone change my diaper and that experience was too close. Anyway, after all that I was chastised for not changing my diaper soon enough after soiling it. I was told that "Just like with babies, wearing soiled diapers for long periods will cause a rash." Surely the doctor didn't mean it, but I hated how that statement seemed to equate me with being a baby.
