How do I care for the stomal area of my colostomy?

Keep it Simple. Michelle - I think you will find this handout helpful - http://www. Ostomy. Org/ostomy_info/wocn/wocn_basic_ostomy_skin_care. Pdf.
Keep it clen. There are plenty of preps that allow your stoma to remain healthy. Keep the skin clean, make sure the orifice of the osteomyelitis back is large enough not to injure the stoma itself. A good skin prep will add an additional protective layer. If you need for help your doctor may have access to a enterstomal nurse.
