As the temperature drops, some ostomates may find themselves dealing with unexpected changes in their stoma experience. This blog post aims to shed light on these winter-specific concerns and offer practical solutions.

In the frosty embrace of winter, ostomates may notice a shift in the temperature of their stoma output. As the cold weather sets in, the output may become cooler, presenting a new sensation and potential discomfort. This is particularly true for urostomates, who might find themselves facing the unexpected chill of cold urine against their skin.

To help tackle and alleviate this concern, it may be worth exploring the option of bag covers. These covers act as a protective barrier from the pouch to your skin, insulating against the cold and providing a layer of warmth that can be especially beneficial during colder weather.
