Baths or showers with Cdiff.

Posted by sandyabbey @sandyabbey, Fri, Mar 8 12:13pm

I take a bath instead of a shower due to a balance issue & running water. I Clorox my tub everyday but is sitting in the bath water a bad thing.?

I really don’t know why I ask questions, I don’t even get an opinion.

@sandyabbey I have no answer. I have never had cdiff. You should ask your healthcare provider.

I personally do not like tub baths. I never liked the idea of bathing in fecal matter and urine. I always washed off with a shower after a doctor ordered tub soak. We got rid of our tub because I could not step over the side. Our shower is handicap accessible.. a walker can go in and there is a handicap bar. I have a shower chair for the times I cannot stand up and for showers for my 91 year old mom. Our shower has a regular shower head and a hand-held one.

Thank you fior answering. I so appreciate any input. I clean myself good before I get in. My Drs nurse practitioner said a warm bath would ease stomach cramps so I took it that she approved. I use flushable wet wipes every time I use the bathroom even just urine. I just wanted an opinion. Thank you again.
