Peristomal Skin Assessment Guide for Consumers

Having healthy skin around your stoma is very important. The skin around your stoma should look like the skin on the rest of your stomach. If it doesn’t, the Peristomal Skin Assessment Guide is here to help.

It is designed to help you identify some common skin problems, things you should do, and when you should visit a nurse specialized in wound, ostomy and continence (NSWOC) for additional support.
