Weeping skin sign of probs

When skin around a stoma becomes irritated and weeps, it can be a challenging issue to manage. According to the United Ostomy Associations of America (UOAA), weeping skin can be a result of various factors, including leakage, improper pouching technique, or skin sensitivities. 

To address this, it’s crucial to ensure a proper fit of the ostomy pouching system, clean the skin gently with mild, pH-balanced cleansers, and apply a barrier product or protective skin barrier to create a barrier between the skin and stool or urine. Seeking guidance from an ostomy nurse or healthcare professional can provide tailored advice to manage and prevent further skin complications.
