I have used this 3 times so far and once was fine instead of the little  no sting barrier wipes after the powder is appiled - now in the last two tries the entire flange can't get an adhesive stick to the skin.  Even when I touch the skin, when I use the wipes, there is a sticky residue that even makes it difficult to raise ther last tissue or two when I hold it down for 60 seconds - with this, there is no adhesive or sticky quality at all.  There are no instructions, not even on the 3m website - does anybody have any ideas.

On my ileostomy, I used the adhesive remover wipes which left a film. ThenI used an adhesive
from a tube I put on the wafer and then had a snap-on pouch. All products were from convatec

Hi i use the cavilon spray i don't tend to have any probs with it only if the skin is sore round the stoma then i can't get anything to stick you could try the convatec barrier cream you need to rub it well in. you may have a dodgy bottle try using another one and see if its any better i also use an eakin seal and and glue round the edge of that then put semi circle seals around the flange. but i am paranoid about it leaking!!!!!! good luck hope you get it sorted.

adhesive spray! I still think you should try it. I get maybe about a week, sometimes a few days longer, I don't always keep track though. I don't always use the stomahesive powder, only when I notice some sore spots on my skin I use it. It really helps sore skin
thanks, Dusti
