Following prostate cancer surgery about five years ago, I've been incontinent. I am prescribed five pads per day plus Cavilon Barrier Cream to apply after a bath plus Hydrocortisone 1.0% Cream to easy discomfort, irritation, redness of the scrotum which is near permanently in contact with urine. The barrier cream works but only up to a point, and applying the Hydrocortisone Cream before or after the barrier cream makes a big difference.
I've read that Hydrocortisone Cream should not be used for long periods, as it can thin the skin, as seems to be slowly happening to me …. suffering more irritation than ever. So, is there an alternative?
Thanks in advance.
