The Back Story
Honestly, the "crusting technique" has always confounded me and I'm not alone. Patients in our support groups and the Ostomy 101 classes struggle with the process. Yet, it's the go-to treatment for healing irritated skin around a stoma (peristomal skin). In other words, there's a very effective, low cost treatment for irritated, painful paristomal skin, but patients don't feel like it's accessible. Not any more!
In 5 minutes you'll learn how and when to use the crusting technique like an Ostomy Ninja.
