Tube Feeding Tips: Odor Solutions

Udderly Practical

We recently had this e-mail from an Oley member regarding a bad smell at her stoma site:

My doctor says it’s a low-grade infection and nothing to worry about. I tried a round of antibiotics and triple antibiotic cream, which did not help at all. I have had a feeding tube for two and a half years with no problem until five months ago.

I tried several different things to get rid of it. This is what worked: I put a layer of Udderly Smooth udder balm on first and then a folded square of toilet paper around the site. In a couple of days the smell was gone. The itching stopped immediately.

I’ve had a little bit of odor back, but it is still a remarkable difference for the better. I have had a BIG improvement since I started the Udderly Smooth.

I would welcome any correspondence through e-mail.

One of our clinician advisors also made this suggestion:

What some of our patients do—if they are using a dressing—is get oil of peppermint/wintergreen from a pharmacy and put a drop on the dressing, which should help with masking smell.
