The hygiene of the peristomal area is very important. You can shower with or without the bag.If you choose to shower without the bag know that the water will not create any problems for your stoma, on the contrary the peristomal skin will clean well.
After bathing, apply your new bag after drying the area thoroughly.
If you still choose to shower with your bag remember to use the special stickers that cover the filter externally.
These stickers are included in all packages with colostomy materials and are intended to protect the filter from water.
If you wear a base and bag, the bag must be clipped onto the base when showering, otherwise water will seep under the base – around the stoma – and may peel off the adhesive.
Finally, it is good not to use soap or any moisturizing cream around the mouth as they can reduce the performance of the adhesive material.
