Hot Tips for Hot Weather

During this hot spell (otherwise known as the British summer) these simple tips may help keep you more comfortable.

Hot Tip – When your skin becomes moist due to perspiration, you may find that the wafer tends to come away, to avoid this it is useful to use an unscented roll on antiperspirant on your abdominal skin around the stoma, but NOT on the stoma.
Allow this to dry and then fix the wafer as normal.

Hot Tip – A stoma bag cover may also help as it will keep a layer of cotton between your skin and the stoma bag reducing discomfort from a sweaty bag.

Hot Tip – It is also a good idea to make sure your supplies are out of direct sun light.
