WeirdBeard posted that he uses Smith & Nephew Tincture of Benzoin under his wafer to stop irritation. He said that it is in a spray and covers the whole area.

     Dan, the irritation has diminished significantly.  I am using the stoma powder and have gone from changing my wafer every three days to every four or five days.  The surgeon recommended I do this.  Thanks.
