Stains on pouch

Has anyone noticed that certain foods can stain your pouch? My pouch turns a dark orange when I eat spaghetti with tomato sauce. Enough raw tomatoes will do the same.

I use Cymed on-piece pouches.

I have arthritis that is very similar to RA, but not RA because I had UC.

Autoimmune related itch.

Meds: 15 mg/week Methotrexate for RA
Cetirizine for the itch

The inside gets stained by my paste but in terms of foods nothing that water can't clear up. This is on the inside only.

Yah, stains on the inside only. But it does not rinse out with water.

Tomato sauce always stains mine, same as it does to Tupperware.

No need to worry about it. It doesn't affect the pouch and doesn't cause any smells or other problems.

I found it depended on the brand, Coloplast always stained whenever I wore them, but they gave me the longest wear time, that was probably a contributing factor.
