If you go to the support tab and look under ” find an ET” you can find an ET Ostomy nurse in your area to help you.
Your body, abdominal contours and your stoma can change over time, so it is good to get your stoma checked each year and especially if you have a sore or wound on your skin around your stoma.
If you live in the US, please see the WOCN website – Wound, Ostomy Continence Nurses – ” Find A WOCN nurse”
Walter, If you belong to the Toronto Ostomy group ask for the ET nurse adviser and the contact information. They have experience with your type of issue and are very familiar with what products are on the market that help,may even have a sample for you to try. 🙂
wishing you warm healing thoughts
Thanks for for information.i do use the powder,when I change the flange,do you know where I could get the barrier ring.thanks
When I also had a sore, inflamed area under the flange and adjacent to the stoma, my ET nurse suggested that I sprinkle powder on the area before applying the flange (I used Hollisters Adapt powder) and to change the flange more frequently. She also suggested using a barrier ring. Hope you can find some relief.
I have had an ileostomy for almost 20 years,without any serius problems.recently,i have had a small unhealed area,where the stoma is attached to the stomach. it is about a centimeter long and does not want to heal. I would appreciate any help with reguard to healing.
I have found that ‘stoma powder’ is very helpful when I have had skin irritations. I also use it around the stoma at every change, and I have been able to avoid issues in that area.
