Dan, I have been using the swabs for several months and also have a bottle of Friar's.
It works wonderously well under my Eakin Seal and the wafer part of my Convatec Moldable. My skin looks great under there.
However, I fear I am allergic to the Convatec taped border as nothing is helping with that outter irritation.
I don't want to give up the Convatec moldable, so I have been cutting off the border and using paper tape,
to secure the wafer. But, I still can't get it completely under control and wonder if I now have sensitivity to the paper tape. Maybe I should cover the entire area with TBC and see if that helps.
