@ Many people worldwide suffer from urinary infections, so they need to take extra care if they want to prevent skin irritation.
In fact, you need to use a washcloth in order to clean yourself and then dry your skin in the air.
@ In order to protect your skin from the urine, make sure to use a barrier cream like cocoa butter or petroleum jelly.
If you have functional incontinence, you could:
- Keep a bedpan in your bedroom Install an elevated toilet seat
- Extend an existing bathroom door.
- Make sure to move any furniture that you cross over or collide with on the way to the bathroom.
- In order to illuminate your path and reduce risk, use a night light.
There are three main types of urinary incontinence:
1. URGE INCONTINENCE
@ This type of incontinence happens when an overactive bladder causes a sudden and intense urge to urinate, thus causing involuntary loss of urine.
2. STRESS INCONTINENCE
@ This happens due to certain physical activities like coughing, sneezing, jumping, laughing and vigorous exercise which put pressure on the bladder and releases urine.
3. OVERFLOW INCONTINENCE
@ In fact, this is considered as an inability to completely empty the bladder which results in the frequent odor of urine.
@ There are many different factors which can trigger urine incontinence including age ( the bladder gets weaker as we grow old), menopause, urinary stones, urinary tract infections, constipation, overactive bladder, nerve damage, etc.
@ Moreover, certain types of foods, beverages, and medications can also stimulate your bladder and cause temporary incontinence.
@ Even though it is just a matter of time, it is definitely not the only way to get rid of the urine. It should be also mentioned that incontinence is not a disease itself, but a symptom of an underlying disease or disorder.
