Haven't been here very often but just letting you guys know I"m still alive.haha

I'm having a small problem which Calmo won't help.lol I've got a fungal infection around my stoma. My mom's picking me up some anti-fungal powder so hopefully I'll be good soon.

Talk to y'all later

Thanks, it seems to be slightly healing on it's own in some areas but it's just a bit itchy.

Thanks guys. I can't wait to get home tonight, change my flange and put on some anti-fungal powder.lol I always used to laugh at the Seinfeld episode where his girlfriend has anti-fungal cream in he bathroom and he freaked out. I thought I would never have a fungus growing on me.lol More reason not to eat mushrooms.haha

haha, I think the powder is already working a little bit. It's weird because I got more itchy when I first put it on and still have bouts of extreme itchiness but I'm seeing a little of the red go away and a part that was pink yesterday is now white so I'm definitely seeing some improvement. It could take two weeks or so before it fully gets everything, I just think it wants to work on my patience lol, but I'm hopeful it will take a little less time.

Thank you all

Thanks Pen. It's not that bad. It's just a little itchy. I just don't want it go get worse.
