Your neck tissue is very delicate and can be damaged when you constantly change your adhesives. This is why you should make sure to do it as carefully as possible. It’s very important to get into good habits when it comes to looking after the skin around your stoma. If you do, you’ll be less likely to get irritated or damaged skin – and the adhesives will stick longer.
Provox Adhesive Remover
When it comes to removing your adhesive, Provox Adhesive Remover is always helpful. Make sure to soak the top of your adhesive, then use the remover to wipe along the edge of your adhesive and gently push it away.
Provox Cleaning Towel
After taking off the adhesive, you should clean the skin around your stoma with soap and water, or a Provox Cleaning Towel. The aim is to remove any oil- and sticky adhesive residues.
Provox Skin Barrier
If your skin is sensitive, Provox Skin Barrier can help. It leaves a protective layer on the skin. Use it after cleaning the skin, but before putting on the daytime adhesive. Always remember to massage the adhesive before you apply it to improve the stickiness. Do not use skin barrier when using Provox Luna.
Provox ShowerAid keeps water out of your stoma when you shower, while allowing you to breathe as usual. Make sure the adhesive has a good seal and then attach it just like your HME. You can now enjoy a shower without having to worry about water entering your stoma. Note, however, the ShowerAid is made specifically to protect you during showering, it is not intended for swimming.
