    If you wash the shaft and glans with a very mild soap like Cetaphil, Eucerin, or Cera Ve (dry, sensitive skin formula) after removing the external catheter, then apply a non alcohol based skin barrier like Smith and Nephew "No Sting" Skin Barrier (no alcohol), let that dry thoroughly before rolling the external catheter on, then apply warm water soaks to the catheter when you are ready to take it off and use a non alcohol medical adhesive remover to moisten under the edges of the catheter as you remove it, you shouldn't need to use any more alcohol to wash the penile skin. That should greatly limit the risk of drying out the skin too much.
    Thank you. That's a lot of good information. I will look for those things.
