Barrier for peri oral skin breakdown

  1. 0 Have you ever used a barrier for disabled patients that have skin breakdown on the skin around their mouth? It would have to be edible, if we used a cream. I wonder if anyone has put a duoderm or something to protect that area.

    We are trying the best we can to keep her hands out of her mouth (which is a constant thing).

    I have seen olive oil used and it worked really well. I may depend on the type of breakdown.
