ADR

Posted on

Note from the FunnyGurl2: This post begins a week-long series on important medical disorders you should be aware of. They could strike your family at any time. The only way to be prepared is to read all my posts this week and get informed.

My husband actually coined this phrase. ADR stands for Adult Diaper Rash.

It is a highly (un)scientific term for the red, bumpy, painful rash that can develop when skin is exposed to too much moisture and chaffing and not enough fresh air. It is highly prevalent in the hot summer months, although it can strike at any time.

ADR commonly occurs in areas of the body such as the groin area for a man and in the breast/bra area for a women.

Its causes and appearance are very similar to that of diaper rash found in babies. In that instance, it is from too much moisture being trapped between the skin and the diaper. Hence, ADR can be remedied in much the same way. Recommended medications include over the counter diaper creams and medicated cornstarch powder.

The key to prevention is to keep the area which exhibits a potential for ADR clean and dry. It is best if lots of fresh air can reach the area as often as possible. When this is not possible due to local indecency laws, you can use medicated cornstarch powder to attempt to absorb the excess moisture which occurs.

I hope you have found this informative and humorous. If not, you need to see your doctor right away about your ADR AND your butt.

It is defective. It has a crack in it.

What I Learned This Week – 7/1/12

Posted on

This week I learned that my husband can build a swing set (well, there is only one swing for now, so I guess it isn’t a set so much as a swing frame) with no plans or measurements except for what was in his head. I think it came out awesome. My son loves it. Our backyard now looks very kid friendly. And if the weather ever cools down, my son can use it some more.

I am very proud of my husband and his manly building skills. I think he may have even surprised himself.

I also learned the best gift a girl can give a friend is homemade deodorant. I have had problems with deodorant giving me a rash for years. For the last few years, I have used Dove Invisible Solid for Sensitive Skin. It was kinder to my skin than most, but still contains the ingredient that gives me a rash (Aluminum Zirconium Tetrachlorohydrex GLY), albiet in a lower percentage, so that it never quite kept me dry either. Plus, I believe it is widely known that that ingredient probably helps people develop cancer. And I used to have to put Hydrocortizone cream in my pits to help with the rash. That probably doesn’t help the situation either.

Then Lazy Hippie Mama made me some homemade deodorant (see this post for recipe). It rocks! She made it from coconut oil, baking soda, and cornstarch. It doesn’t seem to give me a rash. It works. I don’t feel guilty and worry that I am poisoning my body. It did burn a little after shaving, but so does the Dove. It held up alright on the 102 degree day we had this week, although I got scared and reapplied halfway through. And the Dove didn’t do well at high temperatures either. But I would say, all in all, that is a pretty good review for something you can make out of ingredients from your kitchen (and wherever the hell you buy coconut oil at).

If you love your friends, give them the gift of homemade deodorant.
