If your pod sites did not itch before and do itch with mastisol, you 
are probably allergic to the stuff, some people are.

I'd suggest trying Cavilon Cream, it's available as a spray too, but 
that's much more expensive per application.

Cavilon Cream made by 3M (1-800-2283957) product
number is 3392 Durable Barrier Cream.

Cavilon No Sting Barrier Film  - 3M #3346
comes in a pump spray bottle

This should be availabe in medical supply stores that serve ostomy
