Hi Guys! Thought I would share with you an interesting find for those of you who use condom catheters and have issues keeping it on. 

We find in the summer months that the condom blows off easier, especially due to moisture in the groin in the heat outside. No matter how much powder or skin prep I would use on my hubby, it seemed to come off easier. We were recommended a medical adhesive spray by our supplier, designed to help dressings stick to the skin, but dissolving in under 12 hours naturally (no sticky residue leftover after). 

We spray it on lightly over the shaft after using a skin prep wipe, then place the condom on normally. We have been using it for a month now and not one blow off has occurred! This helps with his mindset as well as independence. 

There has been no irritation on his penis as of yet, as its very gentle. I wear nitrile gloves when I spray it on him as it does stick to my nails LOL

The product is called "Medical Adhesive" and it is by the company Holister USA. Here is a link to the spray on Amazon but it is also available through any medical supply company. 

Good luck!
