How to Create the Ultimate Survival Kit for IBS
One of the main stresses for Inflammatory Bowel Syndrome sufferers is worrying about having a soiling accident. Unfortunately, stress can actually contribute to IBS, resulting in a cycle where being afraid of an incident occurring can sometimes precipitate one.
Luckily, there is something you can do to feel more confident and relaxed as you go about your day. And that is, to have a survival kit that you can rely on, should you ever need it.
What you’ll need:
These are must-have items for your survival kit:
- Liquid hand sanitizer
- Flushable wet wipes
- Toilet paper or tissues
- Medications you take, as well as Imodium
- Spare underwear
- Spare pantyhose if you wear them
- Plastic disposal bags – scented if you wish
- Mask bathroom spray
If you have suffered an incident before, you may want to beef up your kit with these additional items:
- Spare pants that don’t crease
- Adult incontinence pads or diapers
- Antibacterial soap or hand soap toiletry sheets
How to store your survival kit for IBS:
Luckily, many of these items are available in travel sizes, so you don’t need to feel as if you’re packing for an overseas trip! Try to put them together into a drawstring bag or toiletry bag that can be unobtrusively carried in your usual handbag or satchel.
Alternatively, a small backpack provides a casual way to keep your kit with you. Throw your keys, wallet and a water bottle in it and no one will be any the wiser! Why not keep one in your car, and another on your person, so you’ll never be caught out?
Unlike other toilet sprays, Mask bathroom spray eliminates embarrassing odors before they begin. So, remember to stash Mask in your emergency kit for stress-free bathroom experiences, every time!
