Urinary incontinence doesn't have to slow you down. There are plenty of products on the market that are designed to help you maintain the normal, active lifestyle you had before you became incontinent. Two of the most common types of products designed to help people cope with urinary incontinence are bed pads and undergarments. However, the list doesn't in there. There are several other types of products that contribute to that goal as well. Examples of these include things like washcloths and skin care products. We're going to get a brief overview of all of these different types of products.
We mentioned earlier that there are two primary products designed to help you beat urinary incontinence, and according to recent medical news articles, there have been great strides made in the effectiveness and convenience of both of these. The first example is bed pads. There are both reusable and disposable bed pads on the market, and both have been made a lot less noisy in recent years. Another example, of course, is undergarments. Noise is a factor here, too, as is absorption rate. Not only have both of these been improved over the past couple of decades, but they've become more comfortable, too.
When it comes to both bed pads and undergarments, these products are about more than just helping you maintain your active lifestyle. They're also about helping you keep your skin healthy. To that end, washcloths are also useful, as are various other types of skin care products. Premium disposable washcloths are often alcohol free, although they do sometimes contain both aloe and lanolin. Incidentally, those two ingredients are good to look for in other types of skin care products as well. Of course, one of the most important of these is a good skin cleanser, which also has a deodorizing effect.
If you suffer from incontinence both during the day and at night, then you're at least going to need good bed pads and undergarments. Washcloths and other types of skin care products are going to be important also. Fortunately, you're not going to have to break the bank to obtain these things. Though the products themselves have improved in recent years, their cost has not increased so much as to become prohibitive. No doubt, this is welcome news to many of you. You can avoid embarrassment and stay just as active as you want to be, even if you're on a fixed budget.
