Can I use an over-the-counter non-prescription anti fungal body powder around my stoma that is primarily for athlete's foot fungus? Like Tenactin for example. I went to three pharmacies today looking for specific anti-fungal body powder for use around a stoma and the pharmacists seemed dumbfounded. None knew anything about stomas or this kind of fungus (assuming that's what I have.) None would recommend the use of anti fungal body powder that says, "for athletes foot" either so home I am with no powder. The skin around my puckered little red bastage (his proper name) where the inner adhesive ring goes is inflamed and red and it itches like crazy. I normally use a healing powder (Ammens Original Medicated Formula) with every application of a new bag but this isn't working to make the redness or rash or whatever it is go away lately. I called my ostomy nurse but it's Saturday and so she's probably on the golf course with my URO or in a casino until Monday. I don't want to wait until Monday if possible. I know my BCAN family will have the answer I seek. Why do we even need these doctors and medical types? We've got each other. Right? Luv, Dr. K. (I'm not a real doctor but I play on on BCAN. If I were a real doctor, I'd probably know what to do or would write myself a prescription or something.)
