Skin response to Pacey Cuff Use
In rare cases, Pacey Cuff use may cause skin irritation associated with night-pad use or soap residue. In the event of non-infectious irritation, temporarily suspend Pacey Cuff use. A protective agent, such as a zinc-based cream, may prompt and accelerate recovery. This type of cream, often used for diaper rash, provides a moisture barrier. There are many zinc-based compounds on the market.
While zinc is not recommended for treating infection, it has been shown to suppress Staphylococcus aureus, a commonplace bacteria. Should any rash persist, consult your physician. Skin infections typically require antibiotics but occur infrequently among most patients. Diabetic patients are especially at risk.
