Peristomal Skin Deserves Better
The importance of peristomal skin health in ostomy care can’t be overstated. The condition of the skin greatly affects how well the skin barrier can adhere, as well as the general comfort and well-being of a patient living with a stoma. Unfortunately, peristomal skin problems are too common. About half of those living with a stoma will report peristomal skin issues at some point in their lives.
Many even think that skin problems are a normal part of living with a stoma. We disagree. Patients do not need to suffer, and our goal is to help maintain healthy peristomal skin from the start.
The CeraPlus skin barrier is infused with ceramide, a naturally occurring lipid in the skin, which protects against dryness, and features a formulation to help:
HealthTrust members describe their success with using CeraPlus skin barriers.
"We've been using the CeraPlus skin barrier since it was introduced. It gives my patients longer wear time, with less worry about peristomal skin issues. The product holds up well to liquid effluent, protecting skin from its caustic side effects. Some of my patients don't even need to use additional accessories such as paste.
The ceramide-infused skin barrier allows my patients to save time, money, and hassles due to less-frequent changes. It also makes our ostomy nurses feel more confident, and confidence is contagious for our patients. It doesn't hurt to share our successes, too!"
"We started treating our ostomy patients with the CeraPlus skin barrier in Spring 2018. The product line works so well across diverse patient populations that we've transitioned our entire division to CeraPlus skin barrier products. Since then we've seen an increase in outcomes and a decrease in overall product usage.
Our patients are excited because — along with improved skin treatment — they don't have to change their barrier as often. And that translates to reduced overall costs for our practice. Having used multiple Hollister skin barriers/pouches to treat my patients, I can confidently say that the CeraPlus skin barrier product line provides the best quality."
From redness to irritation, to no visible signs of a complication, itchy peristomal skin is a very real problem. Learn more about the prevalence of itchy peristomal skin and how the ceramide-infused CeraPlus skin barrier can help.
