3 Ways to Help You Live the Best Life with an Ostomy


1. Learn how to maintain your skin health and watch out for signs of trouble

One of the most important elements of regaining and maintaining a healthy, comfortable lifestyle after ostomy surgery is about taking good care of the skin around the stoma. Living with a stoma doesn’t mean you have to tolerate skin problems on your abdomen. Whether you are having issues with itchy, red, or painful skin around the stoma or want to prevent skin issues from occurring, Hollister has the products and resources to help you maintain healthy skin.

2. Know where to go to understand your ongoing ostomy care needs
