No you can't. This product can be used on your hands, and around the stoma area, but is not recommended for use on the stoma itself.
Yes you can. OstoMIST is not just a masking agent, it actively neutralises odour. Just one spray into your pouch is all that is necessary. You can also give one spray of OstoMIST into the air to reduce persistent odour.
OstoZYME is an Odour Neutralising Pouch Lubricant. It prevents pancaking, reduces static, and kills odour in the pouch.
These are used for added security whenever you have a concern with the adhesion of your appliance. They are applied to the top, bottom and sides of your pouch adhesive area, and secured to your skin. They are made from a strong but gentle cushioned adhesive that will not disintegrate with wear like shaped hydrocolloids.
The OstoSHIELD is a light yet durable plastic shield, which protects the stoma against direct blows. It is used mainly for sporting activities, or at work if the stoma is in danger of being damaged by heavy objects or materials. OstoSHIELD is worn over the stoma pouch, and is held in place by a belt. Both these items are available on prescription.
The OstoMIST Mint Drops are made from natural oils, and as such, there is no evidence to show that it will affect your stoma. However, like with all products, should you suffer a reaction it is wise to stop using it. Generally it is advised to avoid direct contact with the stoma. In the event that it comes in contact with skin, wash the affected area with soap and water.
The OstoMIST Mint Drops are designed to go directly into the pouch to neutralising any odour. They are not recommended for use by Urostomates however.
No it won't. OstoGUARD Barrier Cream is a water based product, and does not contain any greasy substances. Use only a very small amount to provide a protective barrier on your skin, and always ensure that the area treated is completely dry before you attach your appliance.
Yes they are. If you are a customer from outside of the UK you will need to call +44 28282 60506. If you are a UK resident please call 0800 082 6848. Alternatively anyone can purchase them at our on line store.
Our Customer Service Team will notify you by letter when you can have more support garments. When you contact them with your requirements, they will process your prescription, and forward your order by post.
There is no specific ruling for the supply of these items, and most GP's will prescribe 3 support garments per year. The Cool Comforts are supplied in packs of 3, and because they are generally worn next to the skin, your GP may allow you to have more than one pack annually
You can aid removal of your pouch using OstoCLEAR. Loosen the pouch at the top, and spray OstoCLEAR behind it. This will loosen the adhesive, making it easy to slide off without pulling your skin. OstoCLEAR is also available in a wipe for any adhesive that is left behind.
Yes you can. We are happy to take orders for any of our products over the phone with a debit or credit card payment. Alternatively you can visit our online shop and place an order there, or send a cheque and details of your order by post. There is a small delivery charge for non-prescription items.
