Question
Posted by: Audrey | 2003/02/14

Stoma

My dad has a stoma and the skin around it gets very sensitive and sore. Is there anything that he can do to make it easier. He also complains about the body hair that gets stuck to the glue. Please help.

Audrey, there are lots of different ointments available, but they’re all different forms of moisturiser and I suppose the cheapest one is aqueous cream. The best way to get rid of the hair is by shaving them off. Good luck.
