Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: Does Adapt paste make my pouch adhere better?
A: Adapt Paste prevents liquid drainage from getting between your skin and your skinbarrier. This protects your skin and often extends the life of your skin barrier. Adapt paste is NOT an adhesive and too much Adapt paste may actually interfere with a good seal.
Q: What if the Adapt paste touches my stoma?
A: Adapt Paste will not harm your stoma or cause it to stop draining. As you press your skin barrier into place you may see the Adapt paste filling in the area around the stoma.
Q: Do I need to let the Adapt paste set up before applying my pouch?
A: Some people find the Adapt paste performs better if it is allowed to sit for a short time before it is applied to the skin. If so, refer to step 2 above.
Q: How should I remove Hollister's Adapt paste?
A: Adapt paste will come off when you remove your ostomy pouch. If you are changing your ostomy pouch after a very short time (less than a day) you may see paste residue that should be gently lifted from the skin. If a small amount of Adapt paste residue is still adhered to your skin but it appears clean, you can apply your new ostomy pouch over it.
Q: Sometimes my skin stings when I use #79300 Hollister Adapt Paste, why is that?
A: Adapt Paste and other ostomy pastes contain alcohol which may cause a stinging sensation if you have a skin irritation*. Adapt Rings are alcohol-free
and are an excellent alternative for sensitive or irritated skin.
