In brief: No
If an incontinence pad is worn at night, skin issues can occur, but if one changes the pad as it becomes wet, minimal problems will occur.

In brief: Helpful
I would expect depends to be much less irritating to the skin than urine or feces.
Just like with infants. But a soiled depends should be changed as soon as possible.
