I've never had one and I wondered what it looked and felt like. Also, is it right next to the stoma or can it be over a ways? I have an inflamed area and it is not from stool. It could be from the wafer...but I don't think that is it.

Yeast infections are kind of whitish and very itchy, as I recall.

Hmmm....mine is red and inflamed--not too itchy but not comfortable...I will try an anti-fungal powder and see where that gets me. Thanks you guys!

When I had one, it looked like red bumps, and was not close to the stoma. It was near the outer edge of my wafer, and mine did itch badly at times, but other times would not bother me.

This nice thing for me was my doc gave me difflucan (the little pink pill) and that made it go away, so I didn't have to deal with putting creams on it (I thought they might mess with my wafer sticking).

If it doesn't clear up, ask your GP for some difflucan (or fluconaze is the generic).

Mine sounds like yours, Little E. Diflucan sounds like the best route to go.
