Other factors that can affect urinary sheath adhesion include:
Diabetes: the characteristics of the urine caused by this condition can have a negative effect on the
strength of the adhesion.
Spices, Food: we have noticed that the use of strong spices or certain food like curry, chilli,
horseradish, garlic – and also beer yeast can reduce the strenght of the adhesion, in some cases.
We have even heard that a change of diet from meat eater to non-meat eater can affect the strength Skin redness
First of all, try to find out whether the reason for the redness comes from a urinary tract or fungal
infection, soap, medication, or some other cause.

Penile retraction – the solution?
This is often a problem for elderly men and people with a strong detrusor-Sphincter-Dys-Synergy when the urine flows. It can be so extreme that there is no part of the penis visible to attach a sheath.
Depending on the severity of the phenomanon, you can take the following action: • Empty the bladder as much as you can before putting on the urinary sheath (for example, through self catheterisation or expressing, tapping or triggering, see pages 58 & 59) • Use the correct size urinary sheath (Manfred Sauer has 11 sizes to ensure a perfect fit)*. If the retraction is severe, use extra-thin latex urinary sheaths which are identified by the letter “D” at the end of the product code e.g. 53.26 D.* • Use a SAUER Comfort self-adhesive sheath and remove the remaining ring once the sheath is • Intermittent Catheterisation and, if necessary, extra urinary sheath supply (see also the KIC 55
• Some clients tell us they exercise their penis regularly with a vacuum pump and, as a result, get a bigger adhesion area. A vacuum pump can also be used to stop the penis from retracting and generating an erection which is maintained by constriction rings at the base of the penis when the vacuum device is removed. Once the urinary sheath has been fitted* the constriction ring • Implantation of a penis prothesis – this requires specialist surgery – discuss this procedure with * Once the urinary sheath is properly fixed, you must cut off the remaining rubber ring behind the adhering area and, using a skin adhesive, glue any remaining parts of the sheath to the skin (see page 23).

As a rule, “Original” latex urinary sheath and skin adhesive are sufficient to ensure reflux-free drainage.
If individual circumstances lead to unsatisfactory results, consider the following alternatives: • Preventox (skin protection). see page 51• Other latex based urinary sheaths (extra-thin “D” type). see page 17• Synthetic urinary sheaths . see page 17• Other latex-based adhesives . see page 21• Synthetic adhesive . see page 22• Double sided adhesive tapes . see page 26• SAUER Comfort self-adhesive sheath . see page 27 Contact the Manfred Sauer Helpline for free advice on
