With my old stoma, paste wasn't part of my routine, but I'm finally figuring out a fairly product-heavy routine with this new stoma that gives me 3-4 days wear time. Paste is part of the mix (tried without it, and I lose a day....).
I've only used the convatec stomahesive paste. Usually a nurse has given me a tube after applying it once. But about halfway through, the tube dries out enough that I can't get it out . I also have a place that's not home where I occasionally need to change, and I can't seem to keep a tube of paste there -- it just dries out (I tried digging a few days ago, and was able to get out some overly thickened paste, with a lot of work).
So I'm wondering if I'm missing something obvious about keeping the paste from drying out (I do close the cap and roll up the tube) or if there's another brand that works as well but doesn't dry out so much, and maybe is a bit less annoying to use, as it's hard to get the right amount of this paste where I want it and nowhere else.
