Learn how the StomaGenie® can be adapted for sensitive or irritated skin.

Sensitive Skin

1. If you have irritated or sensitive skin directly around the stoma. Pull absorbent fabric approx. 1/8″ (3.175mm) out of cartridge and fold back over open rim.

2. Push fabric back into cartridge, then insert plug.
Tip: Use a Q tip or toothpick to push fabric back into cartridge.

NOTE: Be careful not to overlap too much fabric when using two-piece systems. Fabric may get caught on new baseplate when removing cartridge.
