How can urinary incontinence be treated?

Hello, my name is Traci, i have a disabled ( tbi ) son who i have been caring for about 10 months now. He is incontinent and requires diapers, we have tried everything else, cath, etc with no luck. He has the mental capacity of mabe a 3 to 7 yr old at any given time but physically he s 12 yrs old. He also has a thing with textures. My sister was watching him overnight about a week ago because i had to work late and when i picked him up i noticed she put her daughters satin briefs over his diaper as a diaper cover. He limes them so much ( because they are soft and silky ) i cant get them off of him what can i do to get him to stop feeling on them?. Ive tried other silky stuffed animals , pillow cases etc or should i just not worry about it ?.

As this is a neurological reason for urinary incontinence, nothing much can be gained via medicines, only possible care with assisted physiotherapy and bladder training helps to some extent. Let him enjoy other satin briefs without issues or worries.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
