Urinary tract infections are common in people suffering from incontinence. 

If you have burning urine, a foul-smelling discharge or flank pain, your doctor will need to test your urine for possible infection. 

Over-the-counter alkalising agents like Citro-Soda occasionally bring relief. Some reports also suggest drinking cranberry juice, but fruit juice should be taken in moderate amounts as it may further irritate the bladder wall due to high acidity.

Visit our Incontinence Centre for more on managing this condition.
