I have been using condom catheters since I have had urine leak out of the penis even though I have a suprapubic catheter. I have a neurogenic bladder as well as having a fistula (hole) between my prostate and rectum.
While I was changing the condom catheter I used the wipes to protect the skin off the penis, it really burned. On closer inspection, I noticed crack in the skin. I tried to go without the condom catheter but I experienced enough leakage to the point where pads or protective underwear would not be sufficiant.
Putting on the skin protection burns to the point where I don't want to use it. The problem is that the catheter will come loose withouth the skin barrier.
Is there anything that I can do so that I won't leak, spill urine.
I'm uncircumcised and the cracks in the foreskin is right around the tip, opening. For right now I have put on some Bacitrim (if I have the name correct). I need to have this heal as soon as possible so that I can use the condom catheters again. This is the first time that I have experienced a skin problem with the condom catheter. All the other times I have not have any negative effect other than the catheter coming loose from the penis.
