I don’t know if it is just me, but I feel completely self conscious about odour every day even though most the time it isn’t a problem. I would hate for someone to detect it as I don’t even want most people knowing I have incontinence. Can someone please provide me with some advice on managing this?
Odour anxiety affects us all. I find good quality products manage odour better. I use Attends all in one PE backed active slips when out as they are a snug fit, discrete and breath through the waist band.
Good old Johnson’s talc works for me and I carpry wipes for changes. I also wear plastic pants over the top for leakage prevention if I can’t find a changing place and these help with odour.
Personally the all breathable pads, to my nose have greater odour.
Ironically, drinking enough to get clear urine is the best protection against odour. At one stage I was not drinking enough to minimise incontinence and of course the urine gets stronger and smells more. So maybe try and drink more if your urine is darker.
