Hygiene Tips for Incontinence

Person, Hygiene Tips for Incontinence

Appropriate hygiene is essential for people with incontinence. Here are a few tips to to keep in mind:

  • Keep the area around the urethra clean at all times, if possible, to avoid skin irritation.
  • If you have a urinary accident, make sure you clean the any affected areas as soon as you get the chance.
  • FANNYPANTS® leakproof technology help you stay dry when experiencing leakage by easily changing on the go!

  • When taking a shower, make sure you use warm water and scrub gently. Hot water and hard scrubbing can affect the skin.

  • After taking a shower, apply a moisturizer and a barrier cream. Barrier creams include elements such as petroleum jelly, zinc oxide and cocoa butter that act as water repellents and protect the skin from urine.
  • Yeast infections are treated with anti-fungal creams containing miconazole nitrate.

Reducing and preventing odor:

  • All FANNYPANTS® washable pads are made with a eucalyptus core that eliminates all odor.
  • There are deodorizing tablets you can take by mouth.
  • Drinking more water not only decreases leakage, it helps to eliminate odor as well.
  • Use a solution of 50% vinegar and 50% water to remove odors from mattresses. Once the surface has dried, rub baking soda in it and then use a vacuum to clean the remaining powder.
