Peristomal Skin Trouble? Try This New Assessment Guide!
The challenge is keeping skin in great health despite the constant application and removal of skin barriers and exposure to urine and stool. In addition, ostomates can experience an inflammation of hair follicles as
well as fungal growths on the skin around their stoma.
In an effort to help nurses and ostomates identify and treat the various skin conditions, Hollister provided an educational grant to create a Peristomal Skin Assessment Guide for Consumers.
It is easy to use and helps find the cause of what skin condition you have and provide directions as to how to improve your peristomal skin.
