Topical cream can replace multiple wound care products

TapeRelief is a topical cream that provides a barrier between human skin and medical tape and adhesives. This innovation can replace multiple products commonly used for wound care and skin protection, according to its manufacturer. "We continue to discover more and more applications for TapeRelief, including ostomy settings where it can prevent serious conditions arising from peristomal skin excoriation, mechanical irritation, allergy and sensitivity," said Athena Koler, a company spokesperson.
