Product Description

7906 Adapt Stoma Powder

Hollister Adapt stoma powder absorbs moisture from broken skin around the stoma allowing the skin barrier to adhere to skin.

  • 1 ounce bottle
  • HCPCS: A4371

Adapt Stoma Powder protects raw and weeping skin by creating a sticky gel. It is used sparingly to absorb moisture or exudate from skin prior to placing a skin barrier on peristomal skin. It is convenient to use as squeeze bottle allows aeration of powder onto skin and the bottle has window for visualizing contents. Apply stoma powder after the skin has been washed and thoroughly dried.

How To Use Adapt Stoma Powder

  • Wash and dry skin around your stoma thoroughly.
  • Apply a small amount of Adapt Stoma Powder to the irritated open skin area.  Reapply if needed to coat the irritated area.
  • Gently brush away excess powder using your hand or a soft tissue.  The powder should stick only to the raw area and not be left on dry intact skin.
  • Apply your ostomy pouching system as usual.

Irritated skin around your stoma is usually caused by one of these problems

  • Stomal leakage of discharge.
  • Improperly sized ostomy skin barrier opening (too large, too small, wrong shape).
  • Sensitivity to a product.
  • Removing ostomy pouch too frequently, which can tear the upper layer of skin.
  • Wounds next to the stoma resulting from disease or surgery.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Should I use a barrier film prep or gel to seal the powder before applying my pouch?
A: Skin barrier wipes such as Skin Gel Wipes are optional. Most contain alcohol, which will cause a stinging sensation when applied to raw skin areas. Skin barrier wipes are not necessary to use over Adapt Stoma Powder.

Q: Is there medication in Adapt Stoma Powder?
A: No, it simply absorbs excess moisture, allowing your pouch to stay in place on your skin.  The skin usually heals when protected from stoma discharge.

Q: Can I use other powder such as talcum?
A: No, the use of cosmetic type powders will usually interfere with the seal on your pouch, causing leakage and further irritation.

Q: When should I stop using Adapt Stoma Powder?
A: Stop using the powder when the skin has healed and is no longer moist to the touch.  Powder is not indicated for the prevention of skin irritation. Stop using the powder and contact your healthcare provider if your skin has not improved or is getting worse.

    The stoma powder sothes the skin around the stoma, and helps to dry out any sticky skin areas from previous adhesives.
