Have you got that itchy, burning sensation around your stoma? - Trio Healthcare

If you’ve been living with irritating skin around your stoma thinking you have to put up with it…think again! 

Much irritation around your stoma is due to the adhesive (the light brown bit you stick to your skin) going all gooey and mushy when you wear it, making your skin feel wet and itchy. Many pouches or seals soak up output from a leak to form a seal around your stoma, keeping wet output against your skin. And as the pouch or seal starts to break down over time it becomes harder and harder to remove. You have to pick, scrape or scrub at your skin every time you change your pouch because that same adhesive sticks like glue to your skin. Sound familiar?

Chances are, if you are suffering from soreness around your stoma, it is because output has gotten on your skin and your adhesive has started to breakdown and go mushy.

You may have been accepting this as normal for life with a stoma, but it needn’t be that way. You can say goodbye to that itchy, burning feeling around your stoma.

“Within one week of using the Trio Silvex Silicone Convex Seal, my skin had improved by 90%. The top layer of skin had repaired itself and the area felt more comfortable and less irritated. The itching that occurred before application of the seal stopped. I now don’t have any stoma issues.“    Karen, 54, school administrator

“Siltac® 3 is amazing! I can’t believe the difference they have made. I have been able to keep my pouch on for two and a half days the first time in 18 years!
