How to Effectively Ease Ostomy Bag Odor During Home Care

By May 22, 2014January 28th, 2019Healthcare

It is estimated that this year alone, nearly 137,000 adults in the United States will be diagnosed with colorectal cancer, urinary and ileum issues. One of the most significant issues associated with related treatments is dealing with ostomy bag use during recovery – and more often than not, that use becomes permanent.

While in the hospital, there are effective treatments for dealing with the odors that come with using ostomy bags; however, when it comes to home care, it becomes more difficult to mitigate these odors, especially in a setting where patients want to feel completely comfortable. In addition, unwanted odors in the home can also create embarrassing situations for patients.

Fortunately, Fresh Wave IAQ offers its Fresh Wave IAQ Ostomy Drops, the most effective eco-friendly solution for destroying odors in ostomy bags.

The drops eliminate odors completely instead of covering them up with masking fragrances, which can be harmful to the users (especially for those recovering from surgery). The toxins in the “fragrances” can cause allergic reactions such as headaches, nausea, or worse for some users.

However, Fresh Wave IAQ Ostomy Drops are engineered from a unique formula based on a proprietary blend of plant oils, food-grade surfactant, and water; the result is an environmentally friendly product containing no harmful VOCs, no alcohol, and no added fragrance, making them 100 percent safe for any user. In addition, only a few drops (eight to 10) are needed when emptying or applying a fresh pouch for optimal odor control.

For people already having to deal with the difficulty of ostomy bags, these drops will help give them a feeling of greater freedom and security, which can go a long way toward helping with the emotional healing that is vital when dealing with this kind of health issue.
