How can you keep sore skin after diarrhea healthy?

ANSWER

One of the best ways to keep skin healthy is to let it get as much air as possible. Avoid tight clothing, and wear light, breathable cotton underwear. If you sweat when you exercise or because it’s hot outside, rinse off with water as soon as possible.
