I have a bad rash that started in the area under the cloth like tape that attaches to the wafer. I am pretty sure the rash is not from a leak since I haven't had any leaks. I thought it would go away but it is getting worse. Red and well, rash- like- and it itches.
I have some powder that I sprinkle over the tape- Columbia Powder- the nurse gave me. It hasn't helped much. Any suggestions besides going to see the stoma nurse again.
Ironically, the stoma is fine and dandy and I am finally getting used to it. I am scheduled for my second surgery in which I will get a loop ileo and I am scared the rash will get worse.
