As I know, lots of you out there are dealing with incontinent loved ones, I hope I can get some help here as MIL is still in hospital and the doctor has "had a look" and said there is nothing wrong/visible.
MIL is still incontinent at night but dry during the day. I didn't realise that she is wearing pads 24/7 until this afternoon when she complained of a fierce itch. It was, in fact, so bad that she pulled up her skirt and had a scratch which is when I spotted the pad. She's always had sensitive skin and has avoided perfumed bath products so I'm wondering if it's something to do with the pads? As she's been on different antibiotics for most of the 8 weeks she's been in hospital I suspected thrush at first until she told me about the doctor.
On a lighter note, OH is visiting her this evening and I hope she doesn't repeat the scratching as he WON'T be able to cope
