Your Quality of Life
Getting right to the point, healthy skin can mean a happier you. The condition of the skin around your stoma (called peristomal skin) can make a big difference in your comfort and confidence with an ostomy. Skin irritation around the stoma and/or itchy skin around the stoma may hurt your quality of life.
To keep that from happening, our resources are all about teaching you how to keep your peristomal skin healthy, including tips for skin care and preventing leakage, and an explanation of the benefits of ceramide for healthy skin. You'll learn to take care of your stoma and your skin at home—as well as when to get help—to prevent skin problems and stay healthy and happy.
