I'm using coloplast products with seals. Can't seem to clear up this redness. Thanks for the input though.
If you're using the Coloplast "regular" wear wafers, then you wont' get much out of them (they peel on me after less than a day!). Try their XPRO or Assura extended wear.
Hollister New Image wafers stick really well on my skin and Convatec is good too (both have tape border options). But the Coloplast xpro and Assura extended wear are good too.
Also, just because some people can get 5-7 days, doesn't mean that's the "goal". Go for as long as your skin can stay happy. In countries where the supplies are paid for, people will change their appliance every day or two and the rarely need to use extra supplies or accessories.
