I am a fit and active person, having had an ileostomy for almost 50 years. I enjoy walking, cycling, gardening, photography, Bridge and plenty more. I use Hollister bags and an extra Karaya seal. They usually last 5-7 days.
For some weeks I have had a sore near my ileostomy that refuses to heal over. I have tried putting a lint dressing with a wound spray, then micropore tape over it before the karaya seal and the bag but to no effect.

Any suggestions? Maybe the Karaya doesn’t aid the wound healing?
