Male External Catheter Sizing
When sizing the catheter if you find yourself in between 2 sizes it is best to size down. Using a blunt pair of scissors you can snip the band at the end of the catheter closest to the body. This will release any pressure you may fill if the male catheter is too tight.
How To Remove a Male External Catheter
If you have trouble removing the catheter you can use some soap and warm water. Most men are able to remove it with little to no difficulty. If you still have any trouble you can use an adhesive remover.
Using Male Catheter with Sensitive Skin
For men with sensitive skin the use of a skin barrier can be beneficial. When applied to the skin it creates a transparent layer of “fake skin”. This way the male catheter is adhering to the barrier and not the real skin. This can also help with the removal of the catheter.
