Product Overview

Smith & Nephew Skin-Prep Protective Barrier Wipes

Skin-Prep Protective Barrier Wipes


Skin-Prep is a liquid film-forming dressing that forms a protective film to help reduce friction during removal of tapes and films.

Skin-Prep can also be used to prepare skin attachment sites for drainage tubes, external catheters, surrounding ostomy sites and adhesive dressings. Helps tape and film adhesion.

Skin Prep wipes are fast and easy to use, only one coat is required, so less product is used per application. Removes easily using skin cleanser or soap and water, so unsanitary residue isn’t left in or around the wound area.

Skin Prep applies easily, even on awkward areas and moves naturally with patients’ skin and won’t crack or peel. Best of all, the Skin Prep wipes allow your skin to "breathe" so tapes and films adhere better. The wipes may increase intervals between dressing changes. The Protective Dressing helps to increase the adhesion of tapes and wafers. The Skin Prep also protects fragile skin and reduces adhesive removal trauma.

Features & Benefits:

  • Helps tape and film adhesion.
  • Fast and easy to use, only one coat is required, so less product is used per application.
  • Removes easily using skin cleanser or soap and water, so unsanitary residue isn't left in or around the wound area.
  • Applies easily, even on awkward areas such as elbows, knees, and heels. Moves naturally with patients' skin and won't crack or peel.
  • Allows skin to "breathe" so tapes and films adhere better.
  • May increase intervals between dressing changes.
  • Pediatrician tested

Indications:

  • Apply as a coating to prepare the skin for adhesives.
  • Provides a protective interface that may reduce friction during the removal of tape.
  • For skin attachment sites: drainage tubes, external catheters, surrounding ostomy sites and other adhesive dressings.
  • For use in sensitive stoma areas as a skin protectant.
  • May reduce irritation from contact with body wastes and stoma fluid.
  • Forms a protective film on skin which may reduce exposure to urine and feces.

For OTC applications, please follow Directions and Instructions for Use provided by your physician, nurse or healthcare professional. If no instructions were provided, follow the directions below:

Step 1
Skin should be clean and dry prior to application of SKIN-PREP.

Step 2
Apply a uniform coating over entire area you wish to protect, i.e., around stoma, under dressing, catheter site, etc.

Step 3
SKIN-PREP will dry in approximately 30 seconds. If you miss an area that you intended to cover, wait until the original area of application has dried, then reapply to the missed area.

Step 4
For maximum protection, an optional second coating of SKIN-PREP may be applied and allowed to dry before covering area with dressing or other adhesive product.

Step 5
If SKIN-PREP is applied to an area with skin folds or other skin-to-skin contact, make sure that skin-contact areas are separated to allow the coating to thoroughly dry before returning to normal position.


Removal:
Step 1
The removal of adhesive products may also remove SKIN-PREP, so reapplication is necessary any time that adhesive products are changed.

Step 2
Removal of SKIN-PREP is not necessary before reapplication. Clean and dry the area and apply fresh SKIN-PREP as directed above.

Answer:
I don't think they are. I have the same reaction to them that I have to bandaids or "me-fix" adhesive. It is a rash that will break down the skin to bleeding after a week of use.

Answer:
Have you tried alcohol? That should work, especially if you wipe the scissors after each use. I haven't had this problem because I simply tear the packets open at the notch on the side of the packet.

Answer:
I would use Goo-Gone until the scissors are clean and then, use alcohol on them until the Goo-Gone has been cleaned off the scissors. Then, in order to sharpen the scissors, take a piece of aluminum foil and cut it many, many times until the scissors are sharp again.

Answer:
No, this is for SKIN around a wound prep. Don't use it on wound. As I understood, you have situation with small bed sore on the tailbone. If it's correct, you need to develop a plan for position change at least every 1-2 hours. In addition, you might want to try to apply a bit of Calmoseptine Skin Ointment on the wound. If it's just beggining, Colmoseptine works perfectly!

Answer:
I use skin prep to protect the skin around a wound. However, I never used skin prep directly on a small bed sore or wound. I am a real fan of Calcium Alginate by Kendall also known as Curasorb if the skin is broken. Ask any wound care doctor. I am not a medical person. However, my husband has been wheel chair bound since 1992 and has never had a bed sore on his tail bone. He did, however, have an open sore on his knee from a bump and the calcium alginate put directly on the open wound and covered with a dressing healed that in no time flat. To protect my husband's tail bone as he sits for 12 hours a day in the chair, I put skin prep around the perimeter of the tail bone area, then apply a small dressing which I put over his tail bone to protect him from the material in the underwear from constant irritation due to rubbing or movement. For this I use Kendall Telfa Mini Island Dressing. Item #7539LF or these numbers also on dressing 101153/963506. I get all of the products mentioned from Allegra Medical. Hope this helps a little.

The purpose of these wipes is to protect your skin from adhesives. I think it would be a bad idea to use them to treat a bed sore.

Answer:
the product does clean the skin as you wipe it, but it puts a small "adhesive" on your skin as well. it is for better contact between your skin and another sticky material.

Answer:
I don't know why these would not work for a TENS unit, but I am not positive. I use them when I change the catheter holder on my husband's thigh. The product is used to clean the oil from the skin and leave a slightly sticky layer to better adhere any self-adhesive product to the skin.
