I've always had problems with adhesives remaining on my skin for longer than 24 hours. I start getting itchy by the 2nd day, and by the 3rd, I find myself popping allergy pills like candy in an attempt to lessen the itches I can't scratch beneath the peel-n-stick part of my ostomy bags. It's especially worse in the event that the adhesive gets the tiniest bit wet. So sweating? Bad. And I have hot flashes from prednisone and pain medication withdrawal.
Any tips to help with the itching? I use Coloplast bags, if that helps. I tried Convatec's fancy 2-piece bags, but the adhesive was too strong in some places and weak in others, and was square in shape so it didn't fit my slightly swollen abdomen.
