My adult disabled son has had a Gtube for about 5 years and all I have used to clean it was foam dial soap and water, dry the site then use neosporin. I had no problems until recently. Now the site is red and he scratches it until it bleeds if I am not watching. His dr. told me to try the A&D with zinc oxide and it seemed to help for a while but now he is crying and itchy again. What can I do? HELP Please!!!!
