Bath & Body Products
People recovering from surgery, older adults, and those with disabilities may need help with bathing. Taking a bath or shower can require a lot of physical ability, and so bathing aids are there to help make the process easier. Bathing aids can be anything from cleansing clothes to grab bars that are installed in the bathroom. Whether you need bathing aids long or short-term, these products are designed to ensure that you can get the hygiene you need with a little bit of help.
Bathing aids are often items that can be installed in your bathroom to make bathing safer, such as safety steps, bath chairs, and sponges or brushes designed to help you clean hard-to-reach places. Some bathing aids are used by healthcare professionals and caregivers, while others can be purchased by you for everyday use. The goal of using bathing aids is to allow people who need assistance to get the hygienic care they need whether they are at home, in a nursing facility, or in a hospital setting.
Medical Body Wash
Medical body wash is designed to help people get clean without worrying about skin irritation or infection. Some medical body wash can be rinsed from the skin, while others require no water whatsoever. You can also find medical body cleansers in powder form. Medical body wash should be pH balanced and contain no fragrances or dyes. This ensures that the patient is getting clean without irritating a wound or without having to worry about skin irritation in general. You can find several varieties of medical body wash at CVS Pharmacy stores and online.

This bathing aid helps to reduce messes and you can control the amount of fluid as required to help you feel clean and get relief without having to take a bath or shower. A sitz bath is usually FSA (Flexible Spending Account) eligible.
