Irritated or red skin can be caused by cleaning and/or appliance removal

The top layer of the skin can be broken down if the adhesive is removed roughly or too frequently, or if the skin is cleaned with harsh materials such as a rough sponge. See below for recommendations.

Leakage and adhesives can cause a variety of skin problems. Brava Skin Barrier leaves a thin breathable film on the skin that protects against potential damage but does not affect the adhesion of the next baseplate.

IMPORTANT! If you have any concerns – such as skin problems or how to use new products – you should always consult your stoma care nurse.

  • If the skin damage is in the outer rim it might help if you can shift the adhesive so it covers a slightly different area of the skin around the stoma each time. This can be done by repositioning the cut of the hole in the adhesive.
  • If you’re still experiencing problems despite following the two above action points, there are less sticky types of adhesives that might help you. Please call Consumer Care on 0800 783 1434 for further guidance.
