good afternoon doctor … I want to ask … my child has hisprung, and want to operate when my child is 8kg bb .. the problem is my child’s stoma often blisters and when cleaned there is a speck or two of blood … is that okay or need special handlers?
Hello, Puji Kusumajaya, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
A stoma is indeed a medical procedure to allow stool to be removed from the intestine, but because it is artificial, there will still be minor complications that can affect the skin around the stoma, or on the stoma itself. So to avoid these complications, it is necessary to treat the stoma carefully and cleanly.
A stoma that is blistered and has blood spots, most likely due to irritation. This can be due to the stoma packing is not in the right position so that the contents of the bag can leak and irritate the skin around the stoma and can propagate to the stoma itself. In addition, it can occur because the cleaning of the stoma is not very clean, or it could be due to frequent changing of bags.
It is better if your child is taken to the doctor to have an immediate check and check for stoma, whether it is bleeding due to irritation or for other reasons, making the right diagnosis will have an impact on providing the right therapy. So that the wound on the stoma does not gradually take long so that it can become a door of infection for bacteria to enter the body.
Hopefully my explanation answers your question, thank you.
