I am making frequent pouch changes

Changing your stoma pouch too often will increase the risk of causing damage to your skin around the stoma.

How much is too much?

  • Closed pouch – more than 3 times a day.
  • Drainable pouch – more than once a day.
  • Urostomy pouch – more than alternate days.

If you are changing your pouch more frequently than this, you may need to consider changing to a different pouch.  We would recommend you contact your stoma nurse as you may need to switch to a 2-piece system.

The products below could help to extend your pouch weartime and reduce the number of changes you make.

eakin Cohesive® small

The Extra Protector. eakin Cohesive® small is our thickest seal that prevents leaks for those with looser output such as high output stomas, loose or watery output or urine. The thicker seal can also be stretched and moulded easily around irregular shaped stomas less than 50mm.
