Hi, yes I used Duoderm extra thin all the time when I had a retracted ileo the the nurse who suggested it said it is used to treat burns patients, as the duoderm helps heal the skin. If my skin got really sore and shiny I would cut a hole in the middle of one whole sheet of duo derm the same size as the stoma hole stick this in place( it is self adhesive) then would put a paste ring on top and then the bag with a couple of sure seals around flange, if the bag was to leak it would then go on the duo derm not on my skin. I found it to work brilliantly! As like David M I would highly recommend it. Bev x
