When colostomy bag removed to change ithe skin is red and itchy.
I would suggest that you don't use anything with steroids i
n it. It could lead to other skin problems. They make things to clean around the stoma that don't irritate. Using a moisture barrier such as Skin prep, wil lhelp. Its used just on the skin, not the stoma. Smith nephew also makes one. I can't remember the name, but it doesn't sting like skin prep. We have a store in town that sells things for home care among them all kinds of things, including things for colostomies. If you have something like that, sometimes it pays to just go in and look around and get familiar with what is available.
Oh, I have used the film dressing, called tegaderm, OP site or bioclusive on it with improvement.
