For the prevention of sores, soothing, protective, natural

Decuvia® paste is indicated in the daily treatment of areas subject to rubbing and compression that slow down normal skin circulation, subject to contact with urine and sweat and predisposed to the onset of maceration and ulceration. It is therefore particularly recommended for the prevention of pressure sores.
It creates a barrier effect between the skin and objects or materials with which it may come into contact (nappies, sheets, diagnostic and therapeutic devices, etc.), and helps maintain the skin’s elasticity and hydrolipidic balance, determining fundamental skin integrity.
Its completely natural, vaseline- and paraffin-free formulation, rich in functional substances – including Aloe Vera gel, Avocado, Shea Butter, Phytosterols from Rapeseed, Corn Starch – guarantees excellent tolerability even on the most delicate and sensitive skin.
Decuvia® paste is microbiologically preserved with preservatives also used in foodstuffs and is delicately scented with an allergen-free fragrance and dermatologically tested

What are pressure sores?
A pressure sore is a tissue lesion with necrotic evolution that affects the epidermis, dermis and subcutaneous layers. It is caused by prolonged compression or friction responsible for mechanical stress of the tissues and constriction of the blood vessels, but also by contact with exudates that cause skin maceration.
The risk of occurrence is greater in those individuals who, due to age, neurological diseases, pharmacological sedation, pain or bone fractures, find themselves temporarily or permanently bedridden or severely impaired in their mobility. Therefore, conditions of skin rubbing, inadequate support surfaces, prolonged compression, increased local temperature, improper use of nappies as well as poor hygiene can lead to the formation of this lesion..
The appearance of a fixed erythema, with skin discolouration, heat and hardening of the tissue may already denote the onset of decubitus lesion which, if neglected and not adequately prevented, can develop into a much more serious and profound injury. It is therefore essential to try to PREVENT this situation by frequently changing the position of the bedridden patient, removing localised loads, establishing a correct diet, but above all by intervening on the areas of the body at risk with protection and keeping the skin dry, clean and moisturised.. An intact and protected skin is more resistant to bacterial colonisation and the force exerted by pressure on the microcirculation.

How to keep the skin intact and prevent pressure sores?
Keep the skin clean, dry and supple. After washing with lukewarm water and using a mild cleanser, dry with a soft cloth avoiding rubbing trauma. We recommend specific oily cleansers without surfactants such as Decuvia Olio Gel with moisturising, nourishing and easy-to-rinse characteristics.
In the presence of dry skin, the application of moisturising and emollient oils and creams can help restore the hydrolipid film which, especially in the elderly, is fragile and reduced in its barrier function against physical, chemical and bacterial agents.
Avoid contact with faeces and urine. In cases of incontinence and sweating, the risk of maceration can be prevented by using barrier pastes.
Always act with very light massages so as not to increase pressure on the affected area.
Carry out a daily inspection especially in the areas of bony prominences and skin folds.
Change the position of the bedridden patient often, removing localised loads.
Establish a proper diet .
