Tube Feeding Tips: Skin Irritation
Share |

Suggestion for Irritated Skin

I have a G-tube opening that developed red and raw raised tissue around it. It was extremely painful at the slightest touch, and oozed small amounts of seepage and occasionally small amounts of blood. This lasted several months until (with no thought of my G-tube problem), I bought a bottle of Oil of Olay Ultra Moisture Body Wash with Shea Butter (yellow cap). Amazingly, within two days the raised tissue had disappeared, with no more pain or seepage. I have used it ever since and have been just fine. I know it sounds almost too simple, but I hope this tip will help others.
