What pads might be best for someone with super sensitive skin to use?

What pads might be best for someone with super sensitive skin to use? Topic: Toilet paper reviews walmart

Question: I've got really sensitive skin. I've tried Always brand, Kotex Brand, Great Value Brand (Walmart generic) and they ALL make me itch like crazy and get a sort of rash..something like razor burn. It doesn't happen on the first day, but by three days of wearing a pad, it's unbearable. So much that I will just go without one if my flow is light and use toilet paper because I just can't stand it. I've always used unscented ones, so I know it's not the scent. It's either the lack of airflow, or the chemically stuff that's in them to absorb the liquid. I personally think it's whatever that's inside them to absorb stuff. I cannot use tampons, whatsoever. I have never been able to find any that's comfortable. I have tried and tried with them, and nothing good. So pads are my only way to go. What makes it even worse is I have an irregular cycle, and when I am on it, it lasts longer than a typical period or comes more frequently than typical. So it's even more often I have to use them and be so uncomfortable. My skin is sensitive all over my body- I can't use certain shampoos, body washes, etc. I just can't find a pad that will not irritate my skin! If no one here has any idea, I literally might have to start using cloth pads (they make them just like they make cloth diapers) and I really really don't want to do that. Trust me, I don't wear them for too long. With my flow, I normally don't make it 4 hours before I have to change it. On heavy days, it's 20 minutes or even less. I will say I don't use soap and water to clean in-between pads, but I do use wipes. Not flushable wipes, but baby wipes made for sensitive skin. I then dry with toilet paper. So not sure if that's the problem. Considering I have sensitive skin all over, I think it's just my skin. Also, thanks to the person that suggested Natracare. I've read the info and reviews on them, and they seem like they would be perfect. Also, according to reviews, I'm not the only woman to break out using regular pads...further proving it's not just me wearing them too long.

There are lots of companies that make hypoallergenic ones, just like diapers. Browse Amazon to see several examples. Cloth diapers are pretty awesome, and so are cloth pads! You might want to try a few pads and a few disposable hypoallergenics and rotate the two. My first thought was EEWWWW, but I use cloth diapers on my child because she's allergic to all the disposables. And I thought, wait a second, it's the exact same thing! Amazon carries a few brands of cloth pads, too. So maybe just place an order with them and try a few things all at once. You may have to experiment a little to see what you like the best. There's also cups, like the Diva Cup is one example, that are hypoallergenic.

Normally, no. But some people still paint them with air spray paint or acrylic (art) paint. I've seen some nice jobs, but most of the time the paint goes away. I think your might have been painted or the initial layer has cracked. In that case, go to your local sports/hockey store to get it repaired at the pro shop if it bothers you. They can change the whole leather but it's pretty expensive I've heard. Otherwise you should't worry about the look of your gear, they show you're actually using them and making saves :)

I remember when I played on the street I would just use my hat as my glove and a goalie stick that's it. It was just a tennis ball after all not a puck, if goalies in the NHL once played without masks I think its alright.

Girl, I think you are using one pad for a long time. I have also faced the same problem. I would share the things that relieved me from the same situation. 1. Use a pad only for 4 hours and change it. 2. Every time use change pad, wash your skin and dry it thoroughly with good absorbing towel. 3. Use ultra thin pads. Because stuffy pads with too much cotton in it release heat and which causes itchy effect to the skin. 4. Do not wear pad all the time, after you wash and dry it, keep it open and apply sone good disinfectant powder.

yes, Natracare pads are made from totally chlorine-free, natural cellulose materials derived from ecologically - managed forests and are over 95% biodegradable and compostable. Natracare is first to use the new biodegradable Bioplastics that are made from starch and hypoallergenic natural and effective sugar-based absorbents, to replace commonly used, petroleum-derived synthetic materials.

Maybe you were sensitive from birth. Your parents didn't help. But maybe, things were tough for them. Maybe they did the best they could and really do love you. It isn't easy to go through life with thin skin. The real world outside of the family culture is even harder. At some point, the responsibility is not that of your parents and their faults in your upbringing but your own. That means as an adult, regardless of childhood events which are seen in memory, get out and live. Learn it is not all that easy. Running to others and complaining is not a way to win friends and influence people. Make it happen for yourself. Leave the past behind, and be a grown up. Get your own flat, pay your bills, and forget those people who are genetically within you. You can even move away. On the other hand, someone changed your diapers, fed you from a bottle or breast, tucked you in at night, sent you to school dressed properly, took you to the doctors. There is no law that says one has to be happy. Live life, and if you think they were bad parents, get married, and do a better job. Get away from drama. Play good music at home (your home), light candles, have essences to impart pleasant aromas, practice yoga, and change your lifestyle. Say, "No" to drama in your life. Make it simple. Be an easy person for a mate. Aggreable and supportive. Unfortunately, life has its ups and downs. That goes for everyone, and we are not all treated as we wish at every moment by every person. We have to take our lumps as best we can, and move forward, not backward. As you wrote a lot, I can't respond to every statement. If you want to go the therapy route, it won't help teach you how to tell these people to back off and grow up. Also, playing sensitive me, is a sure route to victim me. How about strong me, and shut up you guys me, and are you looking at me? Say it, don't think it.
