Urinating in one's sleep

Q: I suffer from urinary incontinence. Sometimes I feel very tired during the day but I am not able to sleep due to fear of urinating in my sleep. I sometimes would like to take a nap for 5 minutes but unable to do so. If i do fall asleep for a few minutes and discover that it has been soiled then what do I need to do. I have been suffering since childhood.

A: Wash the soiled area.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
