Introduction to Orahesive Protective Powder
Orahesive Powder is a cutting-edge solution, expertly designed to adhere to moist areas. Its primary function is to create an environment conductive to healing while simultaneously preventing further damage. Especially beneficial in stoma care, Orahesive Powder aids in the efficient application of stoma care appliances. Key features of this product include forming protective barriers on damaged or weeping skin and offering additional protection during colostomy, ileostomy, and urostomy.
The Significance of Orahesive in Post-Colostomy
After undergoing a colostomy – a surgical procedure that diverts part of the colon through a tummy opening termed a stoma – a pouch is positioned over the stoma to gather stools. However, this pouch may sometimes lead to skin damage or cause the skin to weep. This is where the benefits of Orahesive Protective Powder shine. It guarantees the stoma pouch application while protecting the skin from additional harm. Find out more about colostomies and post-operative care.
Orahesive Powder: Ensuring Skin Health
In situations where the skin surrounding a stoma displays signs of irritation, such as redness, open sores, rashes, or other disturbances, Orahesive Protective Powder Covatec can be an efficient remedy. However, for a thriving stoma health, frequent application of the powder on healthy skin isn’t necessary. Persistent skin issues might necessitate more frequent pouch replacements, and therefore, more regular applications of the Orahesive Powder. If skin conditions don’t show improvement within a fortnight, its imperative to consult with a healthcare provider.
Optimising Stoma Care with Orahesive
Navigating life post-colostomy has its challenges. One of the primary concerns individuals’ faces is skin complications around the stoma. Properly fitted stoma bags and expert-recommended products can combat these issues. Notably, Gaviscon liquid, Calamine lotion, and Sudocrem can prove beneficial. For comprehensive advice on skin care and alternative products, always consult your stoma healthcare specialist.
How to Properly Use Orahesive Protective Powder
Correct application is crucial for maximising the benefits of Orahesive Protective Powder:
- Thoroughly wash hands.
- Ensure the skin area around the stoma is dry and clean.
- Evenly apply the powder and softly rub on the concerned region.
- Brush off any remaining powder gently.
- Apply a barrier wipe or skin prep, allowing it to dry for about ten seconds.
- Proceed with your ostomy pouch change as instructed.
- Clean your hands post-application.
