    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Wetting

    We are at our wit's end with this. My 8+ year old granson keeps soiling his clothes (both ways). We have tried everything. He rarely wets his bed. He does take medication for ADHD and I don't know if there is a connection or not. We have tried everything...withholding privileges, grounding...my daughter has even gone so far as to take away underwear. Please help!

    Have you taken him to the doctor? Constipation can cause accidents. I would rule out any medical issues before I continued with punishment.

    Soiling, and wetting can be a symptom of a medical problem. Please contact your PCP. If no medical condition is found, your PCP can also help with techniques to stop the problem.
