My pouch is not sticking

  • The skin surrounding the stoma should be clean and dry before applying a new pouch.
  • When cleaning the skin around the stoma, cover the stoma with a tissue to prevent the output contacting the skin.
  • Avoid using wet or baby wipes as they can interfere with adhesion.
  • Check that the hole in the stoma pouch is the right size.
  • If there is a lot of hair on the skin surrounding the stoma – shave it off – protect the stoma with a tissue to prevent causing damage to the stoma.
  • Only shave on alternate weeks to protect the skin.
