NO-STING SKIN-PREP may help reduce friction during the removal of tape. It can also be used on heels, elbows and other areas at risk of irritation due to friction.
NO-STING SKIN-PREP forms a protective film on skin that serves as a skin protection which may reduce exposure to urine and feces.
The product may be used on adults, children and full term infants from one month.

Instructions for Use:
Skin should be clean and dry prior to application of NO-STING SKIN-PREP.
Foam applicator or wipe: apply a uniform coating over the entire area you desire to protect.
Spray: hold spray nozzle four to six inches (10 - 15cm) from skin and apply a smooth, uniform coating of film over entire area you desire to protect, while moving spray in a sweeping motion.
NO-STING SKIN-PREP will dry in approximately 30 seconds. If you miss an area that you intended to cover, wait until the original area of application has dried, then reapply to the missed area.
For maximum protection, an optional second coating of NO-STING SKIN-PREP may be applied and allowed to dry before covering area with dressing or other adhesive product.
If NO-STING SKIN-PREP is applied to an area with skin folds or other skin-to-skin contact, make sure that skin-contact areas are separated to allow the coating to thoroughly dry before returning to normal position.
When used under adhesive products, reapplication is necessary each time the product is changed as the film can be removed by the adhesive. Ensure that NO-STING SKIN-PREP is dry before application of adhesive products.
When used as a protectant against bodily fluids, feces, or urine etc, and no adhesive products are applied to the skin: (a) reapplication of NO-STING SKIN-PREP is recommended every 24-96 hours depending upon the frequency of cleansing; (b) in extreme cases (e.g. constant diarrheal stooling) with very frequent cleansing, more frequent applications may be necessary (i.e. every 12-24 hours).
Removal of NO-STING SKIN-PREP is not necessary before reapplication. NO-STING SKIN-PREP will naturally be removed through the natural process of epidermal cell turnover. However if removal is desired, the film can be removed by using most medical adhesive removers such as REMOVE or UNISOLVE. Clean and dry the area and apply fresh NO-STING SKIN-PREP as directed above.
