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?
cloth backed pads don’t contain the smell but plastic seem to do a good job for me
How about plastic pants? Not great for style but that helps with odours.
The downside to them is taht they “squeek” a little.
Plastic backed pads and tight fitting plastic pants work for me. I also use skin creams that have some effect on the smell too
Do you drink a lot of liquid? If you are not drinking an adequate amount of liquid, this can cause strong smelling and concentrated odour. You should also ensure you do not have an infection, which a Doctor will be able to diagnose.
Plastic pants are very good at concealing odour, have you tried wearing these?
You also need to ensure you are washing yourself thoroughly. Ensure you are using a cleansing product such as a gel or cream. Taking a small travel size pack of incontinence wipes when you travel is also ideal, so you can clean yourself quickly in toilets if needed. You can also purchase a small odour eliminating spray to take with you when you are out and about.
