Incontinence

Question

Q.

Is it safe for a person to wear adult diapers 24/7 for incontinence?

My 75 year old mother has been wearing Depends 24/7 and has become septic. The doctor thinks that in may be related to a urinary tract infection. She does not wet the bed but is concerned she may. Is it best for her to let her body breath at night?

Dear Teresa

Probably best not to wear it at night.
It may contribute to the infections.
Kind regards
