Re: personal hygiene fro 11 year old with mild cp
This may sound funny but I am so happy to hear this from you!
My daughter has accidents anytime she laughs hard! It is a joke in the family that all laughter ends with an accident!
The odor is the stench of urine. After I posted this I found an article online that shows a study of CP children that says:
Incontinence. A common complication of cerebral palsy is incontinence, caused by poor control of the muscles that keep the bladder closed. Incontinence can take the form of bed-wetting, uncontrolled urination during physical activities, or slow leaking of urine throughout the day.
The link for it is:
My daughter has suffers alot being mentally high functioning but being different then her friends. I let her read the article and it made her feel better to know that she is not to blame and that hopefully with age this will pass, as the article suggests.
