Recommended for use with silicone and urethane prosthetic liner materials. Alps Prosthetic Ointment is not recommended for gel liners (thermoplastic), as this ointment may deteriorate gel over time.
Many prosthetic users have been know to place small amounts of Alps Prosthetic Ointment under their prosthetic liner, specifically along the top edge to prevent skin pulling. This prosthetic ointment also works along any boney area, for example your knee cap, sitting bone or front bone. The general treatment for chafing is to treat the area by washing with a prosthetic cleanser and cool to luke warm water. Then apply Alps Prosthetic Ointment and cover with a bandaid or Spenco 2nd Skin. Alps ointment helps relieves pain and itch, promotes healing, and keeps the area lubricated so you can continue walking without discomfort.
