Last Monday I changed my appliance. Wednesday had a blowout. I noticed that day that my scar at the side of my ostomy looked irritated. I was a little afraid I had ripped it again. Thursday I had another blowout. This time I noticed a red ring around my ostomy. At the time I couldn't tell if the red ring would be under my barrier ring or just outside it.
The last few days I've felt itchy and ouchy right outside the barrier ring but underneath my wafer. Today I took it off to shower and I noticed the red ring was kinda raised and bumpy like a rash. It itches like a beep beep. I forgot to mention that I put skin prep on it Thursday and today. Today the wafer didn't want to stick to my skin at all, it was weird.
I cleaned it gently and called ostomy. Tomorrow they are leaving an antifungal powder and some wipe they said to use to pat the powder into my skin before laying down my barrier ring.
Does this sound right to you all? I'm enclosing a pic.
