Re: Itchy stoma??
I would suspect you have an allergy to the adhesive on your pouch. You might try a different pouch with a different adhesive seal, and if you can leave the pouch off for a little bit each day and use a hydrocortisone cream around the stoma to reduce the skin irritation, that may help. Rub the cream in well, let it dry thoroughly, and apply the pouch later if your bowel activity is predicatble at all.
