Today I changed my appliance and I was very happy that I had no stinging or pain for four days. I even forgot about it at times. I am so happy. So, when I took it off there was very little redness, but below my stoma it looked kind of grayish/yellowish. I got a little scared, but then I thought maybe it was healing where it was all sore before. What do you think? It doesn't hurt or anything.

Oh, stupid move of the I use a hair dryer so I get a good seal. Well I forgot to turn the heat to warm after I dried my hair. Well, some of the bag sealed shut. It's on the top left side so I hope it will be ok, but that was sure stupid of me!

OMG, put the hair dryer on cool if you have a cool setting. Yikes.

The color below the stoma may be some food color left on your skin esp if you use an eakin seal. Rosemary
