Incontinence can happen for a number of reasons. It becomes more common as we age. It can affect both men and women, though women who have had children have higher rates of incontinence. Incontinence can affect the bowels, bladder or both. Somepeople experience full incontinence, while others experience only partial loss. Some people may leak urine when running, coughing or sneezing.
Adult diapers can help both men and women deal with incontinence. For men and women suffering from only occasional urinary incontinence, a liner or pad can be used. These are similar to menstrual pads, but specifically designed to hold urine. These are available in different absorbency levels. Some are adhesive backed to stay in place, while others are larger and do not need adhesive. Incontinence pads are available specifically for men or women or can be unisex. Urinary incontinence pads are designed to reduce odor and absorb small amounts of urine.
Adult diapers are available for full incontinence. These are available in a diaper style with tabs or a pull-up style more like underwear. They are fully absorbent and made for both fecal and urinary incontinence. These are also available in different absorbency levels and different sizes for each person's needs. Adult diapers are designed to wick moisture away from the body to prevent chaffing. They are also odor absorbing to prevent embarrassment. Leak guards prevent leaking around the waist and legs.
Reusable adult diapers can be an option for those on a budget. These are made of an absorbent material on the inside and a vinyl blend on the outside to protect against leaks. They can be washed at home and reused. They should be washed with a phosphate-free detergent for best results and lasting absorbency.
Bed pads can help protect beds and chairs in case a diaper leaks. These are available in disposable and washable. Creams, soaps and wipes can be used to prevent or treat rashes and discomfort. Odor eliminating sprays can be used to combat odors in the air and on bedding or clothing. With proper care, wearing an adult diaper can be comfortable. Odor absorbing diapers and sprays can help keep odor to a minimum reducing embarrassment.
