I've been struggling with incontinence since having my catheter removed on Sept 27.  One of the associated issues is that I had developed a pretty stunning rash in my (ahem) nether regions.  Based on other postings I've read, I see that I'm not the only person dealing with this problem.  A few weeks ago, my wife purchased A&D ointment as well as Desitin.  Both helped but the rash stubbornly hung in there.  A few days later, she purchased Aveeno Baby-Soothing Relief Creamy Wash.  When I shower, I began using the Aveeno to wash and then applied either the A&D or the Desitin.  VOILA!!!  Within two days, the rash disappeared and the fire has been put out.

Thanks for posting this. My husband is supposed to use 'mild' soap and certain lotions during his radiation treatments. Suggestions were given for the lotions, but not the soap. I'm thinking this Aveeno might be just the ticket.

Thanks for the tip!
when I have a problem I alternate days between:
CVS 11.3% ZnO Diaper rash cream - thick white stuff that looks like toothpaste
CVS Ointment with Vitamins A+D - yellow petroleum goop that looks like thin axle grease.

I also increase my fluid intake. If my pee is too concentrated it burns my skin.

By the way, here's a safety tip for you. While Colgate toothpaste may look like ZnO Diaper cream in the dark, it's not. Honest.

Giving big jim and the twins some fresh is a good thing. (sleep in the buff and on top of a bath towel if needed)

Just be careful when using A & D and other tube dispensed creams. I grabbed the sample size tube of toothpaste off the vanity thinking it was A & D. Talk about something that gets your attention....
