Hi everyone! It's been a while since I last wrote, been doing pretty good until last week. Had some leakage and the skin around my stoma (recessed, really just a hole in my belly) is red and burning. Going to change frist thing in the morning and looking for advice. Used the powder and crusting twice now, but wondering if anything else is better. Met an old retired nurse today who gave me some calmoseptine ointment samples (pink stuff) and some of that silver guaze stuff. Anyone tried those? She said the wafer may not want to stick if i use them - sounds bad for that! Heard about calamine lotion on here too - is that the same? WIll it help heal? If you have used these items, how did it work for you and were you able to stick your wafer good? Have an appt Tuesday with an ostomy nurse so at least I should have some help there. Also been using sample appliances so maybe haven't found the best one, yet. Any thoughts? Thank you!
