If the smell is bothering individuals, you can put Vicks Vaporub under your nose above your upper lip. My former ostomy nurse gave me this tip. Of course this doesn't treat the smell in the house but if a person is caring for your mother and the smell makes them nearly gag, try Vicks. You want the original Vicks, that comes in a blue plastic jar (not the newer version that is a white unscented lotion).
