Thread: Intermittent Catheterization

    Intermittent Catheterization

    I'm a quad without any finger movements but I'm doing intermittent catheterization 3 or 4 times per day (every time I feel that the bladder is full).

    I'm curious if using wet wipes to clean my hands and different one to clean the penis head is a good idea. I'm talking about the wet wipes which are used to clean babies skin (skin neutral PH, alcohol free, Vitamin e). Can it be a better alternative to sterile wipes and water with antibacterial soap?

    Which method do you recommend for quads with no finger movements?

    If those are the ingredients to wet wipes then that is fine. The key is whether you are having recurrence of UTIs? if not many UTIs then keep doing this method if it is working for you.

    There is a lot of info coming out that anti bacterial soap isn't any better than just plain soap and water.
