My daughter notices that she can usually feel her output. She mentioned that sometimes it feels like it is burning. It doesn't look like anything is leaking but she says it almost feels like that. Is it just the stoma outputting that she feels? It just annoys her (and maybe frightens her a bit). Is this OK? The last thing she had was a baked potato with some sour cream.
