Managing men's incontinence!
Lost in translation.
At dryfella we would like to ban the word 'incontinence' for many of our customers because the word means different things to different people. However, it does signal a big problem - a problem that can't be underestimated.
One in ten men over 60 have incontinence (light leakage), but it can start much earlier. 'It' is a problem most men won't talk about let alone seek advice for.
We at dryfella are mainly talking about light incontinence, drips, slightly wet underpants, small (but dangerous) urine splashes onto the leg, embarrassing stained and smelly trousers and shorts.
Why call our business dryfella?
Well we're talking about dryness. Wetness is embarrassing, dangerous and worse, it's smelly. Wetness can also have clinical consequences. Urine converts to ammonia on your skin which can be pretty vicious - it may cause irritation, rashes and left unchecked serious skin infections. Isn't it better to manage the wetness problem than the outcome?
Here's four ways you can take charge of incontinence.
• Man up
- go and talk to your doctor about it.
• Exercise the pelvic
muscles before they weaken so they don't loosen and will not close firmly anymore.
• For very incontinence
- like a few drips after a pee. Give up urinals. Use a cubicle
for privacy, tear off some toilet paper and dry things. Slow down. Take your time. Fixed.
• To manage light to medium
uncontrolled leakage - use the purpose designed men's products
. We sell Starter Packs
so you can find out what suits you best.
About our products and service.
We have selected what we believe are the best products available to us - specially designed for men. They are anatomically shaped for men's 'bits and pieces', are comfortable, unobtrusive and others can't see you are wearing them. They work because the special absorbency properties soak away the wetness to leave the skin dry while the contact paper layer on the skin remains dry. They include special deodorizer properties to kill the smell. You'll be safe, happy and confident again. All good news.
