How to Keep Your Ostomy Pouch Dry in the Shower

There are certain questions that come up over and over again when I am on the phone helping people with their ostomy care. The usual questions about products are easy to answer with a little research. Some questions are harder and one that I could never find a good answer for was, how do you shower without getting your ostomy pouch and wafer wet? I was able to find products that worked for casts and small wounds but nothing seemed to work for an entire ostomy bag and wafer. Then I found this video. I think this is a great solution! It is simple, clever, and inexpensive and because it is so versatile I think anyone can use this method whether they have an ileostomy, colostomy, or an urostomy. The tape that is mentioned in the video is a fantastic tape called, Hy-Tape - Zinc Oxide Waterproof Pink Tape.
