We've discussed this at least a million times, but you know how the search is on here.......... So, what's the agreed-on best way to get red irritated weepy (wet) skin around the stoma and under the barrier under control as quickly as possible? For me it's been to let air get to it.....but sometimes that's not possible, like when the skin is at the base of the stoma. My skin went from really good to 5 alarm fire in 2 days. It's for a variety of reasons that I'm addressing, having to deal with excess skin around my stoma and getting a poor seal with my barrier ring......so some of the irritation is from leakage, and some is just from who knows what. But what's important is that I get it under control quickly so I don't burn thru ostomy supplies at a really rapid rate, and that I stop the skin from getting worse.
This morning I did the standard thing.........wash, dry, ostomy powder, protector wipe, repeat ostomy powder and protector wipe. That stops the weeping long enough to get my ring and barrier on, but I'm sure it's not pretty under there. I'll be changing my barrier every morning now, but wanted to look at other suggestions and couldn't quickly find them using the search.
So let me know what works for you.
