What is Stomahesive® Paste and Why Is Ostomy Paste Something Ostomates Should Consider Using?
Stomahesive® Paste works with the ostomy skin barrier to protect the skin around the stoma. Stomahesive® is not a glue or adhesive, but a filler or caulking agent to fill crevices and grooves used to fill uneven areas around the stoma to seal the ostomy appliance. Stomahesive paste can be used by all types of ostomies (colostomies, ileostomies, and urostomies). It helps you improve ostomy pouch wear time. Do not apply Stomahesive paste to an open wound or skin ulcer as it contains alcohol.
Why use ostomy paste?
By properly applying Stomahesive paste skin barrier wear time is increased by creating a flat surface for the ostomy pouch and preventing leakage under the skin barrier. There are several pastes to choose from that are very similar to Stomahesive paste such as: Hollister's Adapt Paste, and Coloplast's Ostomy Paste. They all contain alcohol and so they may sting on irritated skin.
