Bedwetting 17 year old

I'm really worried about my 17 year old son. He still wets the bed and he's nearly 18. He doesn't do it as much as he used to, but he does still have the occasional accident.
We have tried various things such as nasal sprays and alarms, but they didn't really work. The nasal spray was the most effective, but I don't think he liked to keep taking it or going to the doctor to get it prescribed.
It's an embasrrasing condition for him and I think it affects his self esteem.
Anyone advice would be appreciated.

If you haven't done so already, then at this stage I would push for him to be referred to a consultant. Also look into any psychological issues there may be.

I'm sorry if that sounds ridiculously obvious, but as you haven't mentioned either of those things I thought I'd say it!

Perhaps his self-esteem is being eroded by your huge success with women? You should send him to the GP, and have him referred to a specialist, and also for some counselling to deal with any emotional issues he is suffering.

Ir you should get a summer job and stop hanging round on Mumsnet till your exam results come out?
