I have some skin irritation I've been battling. I have decided to try the Eakin seals, but still waking on them (durable medical equip place has them back-ordered and my samples arent here yet).

Ok, that said, I have been using a bit of calmoseptine with a little bit of stoma powder and then putting the wafer on and then the disposable bag (2 piece - synergy esteem system - convex wafer). Well I finally got some stomahesive in today (no Eakin tho - like stated above) and I used the calmoseptine and put hesive on the wafer and attached it. It is BURNING now!!! It was bleeding in spots from irritation already...

Any recommendations? Does hesive burn the intestinal lining? Because every so often it oozes out of the wafer and forms a rim around my stoma... or is the skin irritation just burning?

It's the skin irritation that is making it burn.

Whenever I have irritation (esp. right around the stoma) it happens to me. You just have to try to bear it. It stops burning after a few seconds, and it will protect the skin and allow it to heal.

While it's healing, try to soak that area in the powder, before you put the paste on. That seemed to help me.

But until it heals, it's gonna burn right when you put it on. It also burns if you touch that area (at least it does for me)
YIKES!!!

Ok, that is good to know! Makes sense. I'm waiting on a few more products so hence why I'm trying to deal with it. I did take a little pain medicine because it got bad... its much more controlled now. Hopefully the rest of the products will be in here in a day or two.

I believe paste contains alcohol which is why you experience the sting when it is applied...You won't experience it with the Eakin Seal:) and, an added benefit to the seal is that is will actually protect your skin (if you go for a world record between changes, you may have some breakdown) where the paste is more "caulk" like.

I used the cavilon barrier wipe made by 3M with the powder. I cleaned the area, dryed it, put the powder on, and then seal it with the barrier wipe. It is NO STING! My home health care place wouldn't order them for me so I had them special ordered at my local pharmacy (Shopko, if you have those near you) and it was about $14.00. TOTALLY WORTH IT!

glad that worked for you!
sometimes though, those barriers can lessen wear time, just so you know.
