When I was a new ostomate, I remember seeing sheets of stickers included with my ostomy bags and had no idea what they were for.
The term “burping” isn’t something you’d expect to go hand in hand with ostomy care, but it is something that ileostomates and colostomates should familiarize themselves with.
Having used ostomy deodorant products for the past several years, I’m surprised that I haven’t used the Adapt Lubricating Deodorant product by Hollister until recently!
