Try rinsing the skin around your stoma using cool water with about 1 tsp. of baking soda in it. You might find that this will help with the itching. Also be sure to use a skin barrier prior to putting on the new flange. This will help protect your skin. I have found that the baking soda usually does the trick. Hey give it a try, what do you have to loose??? Good Luck

There is a prescription medication in the US called Zonalon (doxepin hydrochloride). This works wonders on itchy skin especially around the barrier. Good luck.
