GENERAL DIRECTIONS FOR USE:
Clean the area
apply a light coating to effected areas. Use the least amount of strokes to spread the iLEX as possible.
if iLEX starts to granulate, apply a little more iLEX over the existing layer. The amount used will vary with the needs of each patient.
For treating an Ostomy, apply a light layer of iLEX directly around and up to the stoma and irritated areas at each appliance change.
An adjunct adhesive preparation may be applied on top of iLEX to assist with adhesion of the appliance.
ILEX provides a tight seal at the site of the stoma and protects the area of clearance between the stoma and the appliance wafer thus protects the skin from digestive enzymes from contacting the exposed skin.
The soothing properties of iLEX will often provide immediate relief from discomfort during appliance and diaper changes, allowing for better skin care and patient compliance in the management of their home care.
Do not attempt to forcibly remove any remaining residue of iLEX on excoriated areas. This residue should be left in place so as not to injure sensitive and weeping skin tissue. Simply apply ILEX over the remaining residue.
an effective barrier against the devastating effects of urine and feces in the perianal region.
contains no alcohol and will adhere to denuded weeping tissue without discomfort to the patient.
especially effective in the pediatric patient where systematic absorbtion of toxic substances such as alcohol are contraindicated.
iLEX may be used in conjunction with prescribed topical agents (put underneath ilex) such as antifungal and antibacterials, that must be maintained and protected on the site being treated.
a coating of petroleum jelly should be appllied over iLEX in the perianal area to prevent the buttocks (gluteal crease) and the diaper from sticking. When cleansing, only the petroleum jelly should be wiped off leaving the iLEX in tact, then reapply petroleum jelly over iLEX. This procedure should minimize any trauma to already irritated skin.
after each stool, wipe off the petroleum jelly only, while leaving the iLEX in tact and simply reapply petroleum jelly over the iLEX. As the denuded areas heal, iLEX® Skin Protectant Paste may be cleaned with a mild antibacterial soap. This procedure may also be used treating the geriatric patient.
