I don't think it's an issue with leakage/the seal. The part of my skin that is irritated is the part where the adhesive is, farthest from the stoma. It's gotten a little better since I've started cutting off the outside but the issue now is that since i'm cutting off the outside, it only sticks on by like 1-1.5 inch ring of pectin, and it starts to come unstuck after only a day. UGH! I can't order any full wafers with no adhesive until the end of the month, but I'm nervous that once i do order them, those won't stick either. :( I don't know what to do.
I've contacted some companies to get samples but it is a slow process and is taking forever. I'm really frustrated. :(
