IMPORTANT! If you have any concerns – such as skin problems or how to use new products – you should always consult your ostomy nurse.

  • The skin must be completely clean and dry in order to obtain optimal adhesion. Make sure you use a soft, clean, and dry material to dab the moisture away. 
  • It can be a challenge to keep the skin dry during application if output is continuously coming out of the stoma. It might help to wrap a little gauze around the stoma while changing to absorb output.
