I have a couple questions:
Do you change your appliance before or after you shower?
Do you use Skin Prep all over your stomach?
What type of soap do you use? Do you use lotions?
The reason I ask those is because each one can affect your wafer/wafer tape ability to stick! Most manufacturers say to not shower or get your appliance wet within 24 yours of application (I was bored one day and actually read the inserts
). Using Skin Prep all over your stomach has been known to cause the tape to fail when it gets wet as well as soaps with moisturizers and lotions
And, sometimes, our bodies don't work with certain brands...have you tried samples from other manufacturers?
If it's not the actual wafer, don't worry too much about
it...just so you know that the wafer will be ok without the tape, I actually trim off the tape part when I use certain brands!!! Using a Sure Seal will eliminate the problem, too
