Can heal denuded skin in 3 days"

Aggressive barrier. Adheres to denude skin.
Needs petroleum over it. Technique dependent.
Best Uses:
Manage open perianal skin.
Describe Yourself:
Skin Care Professional.

As a CWOCN, this product is the only one that I have found within my 23 years in practice that will heal a denuded painful perianal skin within 3 days. Applied to clean dry skin iLex must be fanned out in one direction to cover the entire area. This is done once per day. Then cover with liberal amounts of a vaseline type petroleum product. I have also used a second layer of vaseline petroleum gauze of the vaseline layer for severe areas. When the patients soils the area the petroleum layers are cleaned off and reapplied as needed. If this is done accurately the skin will be healed within 3 days.

Excellent barrier cream

Soothes Skin. Goes On Smoothly.
Best Uses:
severe diaper rash.

My 18 month old daughter has a minor bowel issue that is treated with laxatives. The laxatives often lead to loose stool and severe diaper rash. I use the Ilex overnight to protect her delicate bottom from irritation. It has worked wonders!

Can this product be safely used with a fistula pouch? Skin around opening sometimes becomes raw from seepage.

Yes, It'a very good barrier cream that should stop any further raw skin and let it heal with no burning.

I have used the Ilex Skin Protectant Paste around the gastrostomy site on the belly of my daughter for about 10 years. Her button leaks a lot, and stomach acid can be quite corrosive to skin. Also, wetness of any kind for extended periods can lead to yeast infections or even bacterial invasion. I have had great success in preventing skin breakdown under these conditions with the use of the Ilex paste. I clean the area with soap and water, and rinse with water, gently dry, apply a light dusting of antifungal powder, then liberally apply the Ilex around the stoma. The Ilex is not irritating to the tissue within the opening if some gets in there. I cover the Ilex with a foam padding cut to a diameter of about 1.5 inches, put a cut-to-size papery gauze over that (Excilon drain sponge), and tape down with Hypafix tape. My daughter likes to rub the area, so the tape protects the dressing. I have heard that Desitin cream provides much of the same benefit around stomas, but I have never needed to try that since the Ilex works so well.

Absolutely, I have had a feeding tube for ten years and had struggled with skin irritation around the opening for several years. Finally this product was suggested to me by a wound specialist and within a few weeks the skin was healed around my tube. I use this product daily and have no problems what so ever.
