I have a couple of rashes that will not go away. One is on the lower side away from the stoma and the other is on the right side, also away. They are pink in colour and tend to weep. The weeping causes the flange to come off, but I've been using medical tape to reinforce it. I haven't had a leak in a very long time so I don't think it's because of that. I've been using stoma powder and spraying barrier film on top. I heard this might have happened due to the flange peeling off layers of the skin. Does anyone have any advice on what I can do? I've contacted my stoma nurse but she's not always available.
