This I need occasionally , but needed a lot in the early weeks.It helps to heal sore skin and open wounds around the base of the stoma. It also then helps to protect it too.

I sometimes put it on before the Eakin seal ,but if It is minimal soreness, I might put some on after the Eakin seal.

You need to be careful not to put too much on or around where the pouch will go as it can prevent it from sticking well.
