Adapt Stoma Powder FAQs
Q. Should I use a barrier film prep or gel to seal the powder before applying my pouch?
A. Skin barrier wipes such as Skin Protective Wipes are optional. Some may contain alcohol, which will cause a stinging sensation when applied to raw skin areas. Skin barrier wipes are not necessary to use over Adapt stoma powder, but your nurse may recommend them.
Q. Is there medication in Adapt stoma powder?
A. No, it simply absorbs excess moisture, allowing your skin barrier to stay in place on your skin. The skin usually heals when protected from stoma discharge.
Q. Can I use other powder such as talcum?
A. No, the use of cosmetic type powders will usually interfere with the seal of your skin barrier, causing leakage and further irritation.
Q. When should I stop using Adapt stoma powder?
A. Stop using the powder when the skin has healed and is no longer moist to the touch. Adapt stoma powder is not designed to be used for the prevention of skin irritation. Stop using the powder and contact your healthcare provider if your skin has not improved or is getting worse.
