What is the treatment for enuresis in kids?

My son is 8 yrs old and still wets the bed at night. I have heard of a nose spray that helps prevent bed wetting. Is this effective or do you have advice for something more effective? He is going to camp and we want to avoid the embarrassment of a pullup. Thanks

Pediatrician, Pulmonology 's  Response
Hi...Thank you for consulting in Health Care magic. I have few questions for you -
1. Has your son stopped bed wetting at certain age and again started having it
2. If so at what age he stopped and when did it start
If he had never stopped bed wetting form birth...you can try some behavioural changes which I can elaborate after proper history and interaction with you , but the effect will not be immediate, but it will be permanent. If its a recurrence after attaining night time control, I suggest you see your paediatrician to rule out pathological causes like urinary infections or Voiding dysfunction. Hope my answer was helpful for you. I am happy to help any time. Further clarifications and consultations on Health care magic are welcome. If you do not have any clarifications, you can close the discussion and rate the answer. Wish your kid good health.
