  1. Sore

    I have what is a really red spot about the size of a pencil eraser. I seen the ostomy nurse and he said it is nothing to worry about but is getting worse. I use coloplast and did a sample of lite convex down from currently using deep convex. It didn't seen to make much difference but hard to tell seeing as they only give you 2 samples. I also use the powder product to dry it before adding sking prep but tried not using skin prep after the powder but no change. Also I currently use the strip past which is the long piece that you form as I tried the ring and stuck so bad it was worse. Who else could I see about this.
  2. URGENT wafer problem

    I have had a urostomy for 2 years and 12/15/2016 I had my bladder removed and the scar isn't in the way but we can't ge the wafer to stick on that sidefor more than seems like not eve a half hr. It just peels of. Only thing that;s being done different is the the extension barrier adhesive can't be used because of the scar at this time otherwise we have tried different soaps to try and make sure it is clean enough after surgery and always used skin prep but even tried without and getting the same results. Only thing keeping it from actually leaking all over is the strip paste used around the inside. I'm afraid this is going to leak and get into and opening in the scar and cause a nasty infection.
