The itches usually means some stool has gotten on your skin and is irritating it. That is not always the case but usually. As you know, stool can breakdown your skin fast, so that's why it's important to change.

i don't always change right away when i get the itichies alot of times mine go away. But if they dont' i change it. I can't seem to see what causes them though
except of course, as soon as i started reading this post i got the itchies, lol.

Rinse your pouch and around the stoma with cool water --- a lot of times this cleans the stool off of the skin and eases the itches!
