someone at hollister told you to only wear a bag for 2 days? i'm on day 5 now, i will probably change tomorrow, but could actually probably get a few more days, but don't want to chance it.
skin prep, as a general rule, will lessen wear time, the less stuff you put between you and the wafer the better it is. it's made to stick to you, not to other stuff. skin prep and powders are made if you have sores. some people use a prep that's also sticky, which does extend wear time for some people. but the skin prep you get from the ET is not like that.
you guys who are having the "eroding" may be cutting the hole to big, check the size, esp if your stoma is new.

No matter what kind of day you are having, take five minutes to sing loudly and dance like a fool!
