I have had my temporary ileo since June 21st and I too am still learning...but, I have found that if I switch between products, primarily Hollister and Convatec, that the itching and general uncomfortableness is greatly reduced. I have found overall that Hollister is the most comfortable being more pliable and softer, but the wafer seems to fail me after the 3rd or 4th day, whereas with Convatecs moldable wafer, the wafer can last for 7 days.
Have you tried Hollister?
