My insurance covers Hollister products. The wafers for the regular flat one piece and two piece systems irratates my skin. The convex with tape doesn't irratate as much. But, my stoma is weird, and the opening faces up, instead of out, and is VERY close to my skin. So, EVERY single wafer I've tried comes up and unsticks by the opening. Everytime it goes, the gunk gets under it, and then the wafer only lasts a day or two at the most, and my skin gets even more irratated. I've tried paste, but it doesn't seem to work, either, and it makes me itchy. I haven't tried an eakin seal, but it seems like it's so thick, that it would cover the opening on my stoma completely.
