Helpful Bathroom Products

Sometimes bladder patients feel like they live in the bathroom, or they find that everyday bathroom products increase their discomfort. Others resist traveling, fearing that they will get caught without bathroom access.

With a little problem solving, however, you will find that there are things you can do, to ease your discomfort and fears.

Ideas include: 

  1. Changing your bathroom paper. Many commercial papers are bleached with chlorine or leave flaky residue on your skin that can be irritating. 

  2. Using gentle wet wipes.

  3. Using a squirt bottle to cleanse.

  4. Wearing pads that contain urinary leakage.

  5. Carrying portable urinals or travel johns on long trips.

  6. Ask your physician for a medical parking permit so that you can park close to a building if you have "urgent" occasions. Although you may not need this every day, getting temporary permits make great sense when on vacation.

Scott Bath Tissue

Although some say Scott is not as "soft" as other tissues, many of the bath tissues that are advertised as soft can leave flakes or debris behind after use, creating yet another irritation to a very delicate part of your body. If you think that your tissue could be a culprit in your situation, try different brands.
