I know I have blogged about medihoney a few times already in the past few years, but I feel I need to blog about again. I am just so amazed at how well that stuff works!!!
Even though my new stoma is looking really good, no irritation, no redness at all, I did have some problems with granulation tissue inside my stoma tract. It bled amost every single day, and I started to be afraid that it would maybe become infected with it being an open wound all the time.
So I brought out the medihoney again, started applying it with a Q-tip twice a day, always sliding my tube in and out of the stoma in the process in order to try to get as much medihoney as possible inside my stoma tract.
After two weeks my stoma tract has healed very nicely and the bleeding has stopped completely. I will still be using the medihoney for another week just to make sure. My stoma tract seems to have tightened up more too, hardly any leakage now, I don't even have to use barrier cream anymore.
