Anyone get very itchy in the heat under the flange. My son said he wants to move to Alaska. He used to love the beach, pool and tropical vacations but now he hates to go outside if it's >70 degrees. 🙁

Heat hasn't upset my barrier too much, but when I get itchy under the tape part of it, I squirt a tiny bit of nasacort on my fingers,  wipe it around the itchy area,  and continue with my normal barrier application.   I usually do this maybe twice a month.  I picked up this tip on another ostomy site, and it works great for me.   I checked 1st with my dermatologist who said it wasn't a fungal or yeast thing.  Maybe your son could run this idea by his ostomy nurse or dermatologist?
