I've always had really sensitive skin and I am not surprised that my wafer is creating a very itchy rash. I need to find a new kind of wafer, and quick! I'm using Hollister right now, and I am cutting off the adhesive part at the suggestion of my nurse, as the rest is made of just pectin and she said that should be fine until I can find another kind that works.
Does anyone have any suggestions? I'm such a newbie, I don't even know what other companies there are in order to try out their products. Thanks guys!
