With warm weather it would be a good idea to think about about the storage of your stoma supplies. Make sure you have it in a cool, dry place. It’s always worth thinking about your emergency supplies that you might keep stored in your car. Warmer temperature might affect the adhesive on your appliance. If you use a seal or flange extenders, they might not respond well if the temperatures are extremely warm. Check your emergency supplies in the car and maybe refresh it, to make sure you have a new fresh pouch and new accessories.
