      Check all advice with your medical team! Plus, quoting medical sources (HON code requirement)   08/25/2015

      Here at Ostomyland we are a patient run community - meaning we have learnt what we know as a result of being the patient and 99% of our members have got no medical qualifications whatsoever, and so any support replies are usually based on personal experience or friends/family-members personal experience. As a result Ostomyland strongly recommend that all members should check the accuracy of any support/health advice they have been given here with a member of their own medical team (GP, ET/Stoma Nurse/ Surgeon etc) BEFORE acting on it. This is for your own safety, as all our bodies are very different, and what works for one might not for the other, and for another it might even be dangerous! Ostomyland is not responsible for the content of the posts made, each member is responsible for their own posts. So if you ever did get any duff advice (unlikely, but could happen one day....) then blame the person who posted the message, and not Ostomyland. We are proud to be HON code certified and work very hard to meet the requirements of their principles. As such, and as requested under principle 4 of the HON code guidelines we must ask that members of the forums please quote sources for any medical information they give which is not based on personal experience.   Thanks.

I have what is a really red spot about the size of a pencil eraser. I seen the ostomy nurse and he said it is nothing to worry about but is getting worse. I use coloplast and did a sample of lite convex down from currently using deep convex. It didn't seen to make much difference but hard to tell seeing as they only give you 2 samples. I also use the powder product to dry it before adding sking prep but tried not using skin prep after the powder but no change. Also I currently use the strip past which is the long piece that you form as I tried the ring and stuck so bad it was worse. Who else could I see about this.
