I thought I'd ask on here, because some of you have children with feeding tubes.
I have a GJ tube that I use for my medicines, extra water and supplemental formula due to having gastroparesis. Well, lately i have noticed that its leaking a lot more and the leakage is causing bad rashes on the skin underneath the disk of the feeding tube. The rash is red, raw and stings quite a bit. I have been cleaning the site with warm water and changing the dressing frequently. I have also been putting Calmoseptine ointment on there to protect my skin, as well as Emla cream to make the site stop stinging as much.
Does anyone else know what I can do to get the site to stop leaking as much and how to get the rash to clear up?
