Ostomy odor eliminators are designed to prevent and neutralize odors within an ostomy pouch. Most ostomy odor control products are in the form of liquids that are dispensed into the pouch. Some ostomy odor eliminators also double as pouch lubricants. This creates a slick surface within the pouch to prevent the sides of the bag from sticking to one another. If your bag sticks to itself, it can cause output to stay at the top of your pouch near your stoma, which can cause irritation. Lubricating deodorants help output to fall to the bottom of the pouch. This is not only good for your stomal health, but it also makes it easier to empty your ostomy bag. Express Medical Supply also carries chewable tablets that eliminate odors internally.
Another way to reduce ostomy odors is by using a room deodorizer. Room odor eliminators are available as liquid sprays and a solid air freshener. These products are designed to neutralize biological odors that can come from urine, feces, necrotic tissue, and more. Some room odor eliminators are lightly scented, while others do not contain any fragrance.
