Abstract

A wrap-around absorbent shield forms a semi-tight seal with the flesh of a subject, where at least a part of the shield at the semi-tight seal is made of an absorbent material. The combination of the absorbent material and the semi-tight seal substantially prevents the flow of material past the semi-tight seal without causing discomfort to the subject.
