Ok, for the first while with my ileostomy I was fine, no itching or irritation. Now...I can't stop itching!!!!! I do take Benadryl but I'm pregnant and I don't want to continue taking so much of it even tho the docs tell me it's ok.
I've ordered some new wafers from Hollister (I've been using Convetec since the surgery) to see if maybe I'm just allergic to my current ones.
Also right around my stoma the skin is very red and inflamed...and when I put the wafer on with the paste it burns like crazy!! I use sween cream and it seems to help alot with redness but the itching is making me nuts!
What are some alternative products I could try to stop this itching/irritation? Thanks in advance!!
