Anyone with a baby can tell you that various brands of baby wipes can be skin irritating and result in rashes for some children. As a nurse, I watched some of my elderly and pediatric patients develop severe genital and anal irritations, that appeared to worsen with each cleaning. Logical deduction told me that the wipes were the likely culprit. Sure enough, 99% of the time the patient would improve when the wet wipe was discontinued and good old soap and water was reintroduced.
Handicapped children and adults are at an even higher risk for developing skin irritations, breakdowns, and sores. The last thing they need is an irritating wipe on top of it.
Up until now, it was unknown exactly what caused wet wipes and baby wipes to be skin irritating. Researchers have finally discovered one of the main culprits.
