That has happened to me a lot! I've only had my ileostomy for about
2 weeks. I was discharged from the hospital with Hollister products and they have this stuff called Adapt Lubricating Deodorant. You squirt some into a new pouch to control odor and help material slide down the pouch. When I am putting on a clean pouch I squirt a little of it on my index finger and apply it to the inside of the flange, right around my stoma. That has really helped a lot. I don't know if other suppliers have an equivalent. Good luck! As far as odor goes, I wonder if we are hyper sensitive to it??? My dear husband swears he smells nothing different from "before" when I used the restroom. I do use my room deodorizer much more now though!
