Frequently Asked Questions On Ostomy Powder, Paste and Protectants

Ostomy paste is used to protect the skin around a stoma and fill in uneven skin surfaces and gaps which could cause leakage around an appliance. Ostomy paste has a thick consistency like toothpaste and works like glue. It helps provide a tight seal around the stoma thus preventing leakage.

Ostomy powder is used for treating peristomal complications such as skin irritation. It should be used only when required. The powder offers an absorptive as well as a protective layer that dries the wet skin ensuring a better seal. When the skin is healed and no longer moist, stop use of stoma powder.
