Tube Feeding Tips: Solution for Pain Around G-tube
Share |

Pain Around G-tube Site

I have been experiencing pain around my G-tube site. I have tried many, many suggestions but have gotten very little relief. Most recently my GI physician recommended applying a thin layer of Triple Antibiotic Plus Cream, and then a very small amount of Lidocaine Viscous Topical 2% Solution.

It’s been wonderful. The pain is gone and so is all the soreness, redness and skin breakdown. After applying these creams I put on a gauze pad or folded-up Kleenex.

Editor’s note: It would be wise to check for granulation tissue around the site as well.
