Why is dressing the groin and thigh areas so hard? And How is HidraWear changing that? 

The groin, thighs and buttocks are some of the toughest places to dress and retain a dressing.

This is due to a combination of factors such as perspiration & moisture, body hair, curves, creases, sensitive skin, movement and, of course friction.

With all of this in play, it is little wonder that dressings quickly unravel, leak, fall off, restrict movement, pinch the skin, and cannot be easily adjusted if repositioning is needed, and to make it worse they cause pain or skin damage during when you try to take them off.

Regular adhesive dressings can cause irritation and skin damage.

Dressing these areas can take a lot of time and even then the dressing often leaks or falls off. This can be very embarrassing.

Using a regular adhesive dressing can cause irritation and skin damage, especially when you’re changing them a lot.

Tapes can be fiddly to apply, and restrict your range of movement, and they still fall off.

Non-adhesive options like bandages and nets can be bulky & indiscreet, and sometimes you can’t wear your favourite clothes.
