Thank you for the mini guide to ostomy pouch deodorant. I like your tip to be careful of blue deodorants as they can stain your clothes. I wouldn't have even thought of that so thank you for noting it. I'll pass this on to a friend who is having to buy ostomy pouch deodorant now.

Is there a danger of irritation of the stoma if it comes in contact with some of the deodorants?
Would you recommend one above the others?
Thank you very much

Hi Andree,

That's a good question. Products designed for stomas, like in-pouch deodorants, are created to be safe near and around open wounds (like your stoma!).

However, if you have broken skin, then I would reduce the number of products used until that clears up.

But product to stoma contact should be perfectly safe.

I've been a fan of the Hollister M9 product for years, and I find it effectively eliminates pouch odours.

I use both Adapt lubricant and M9 deodorizing drops and have had no irritation to my stoma. The M9 drops are blue, which I think helps in seeing/controlling how much you are using (12-20 drops), and although it has gotten onto my clothing a few times it washed out and didn’t permanently stain. M9 is a wonderful product for me.

I would like to know if there is a need for concern of suggested deodorants for being sticky and causing the bags over the stoma to cling to the stoma preventing the stoma from excreting?

Hi Charles, I don't see any concern with that happening.

When used as directed, these deodorants and lubricating products won't interfere with output; the latter may actually help to prevent "pancaking", which causes stool to stick around the stoma and top half of the bag.
