I was at my in person support group last week, and someone asked about what people use under the pouch.... when I talked about the CBT, the nurse who goes to the group said she doesn't like it, much too harsh.... but I have had no problem, and my own nurse thought it was fine (that nurse also didn't like the hydrogen peroxide for deodorizing).... I just let it be....
Yeah, the Convatec nurse kinda hesitated on the phone the other day when I told her what I used. She did go on to say that she wouldn't tell me to stop using it, but I got a vibe.
Oh well, so far so good with me. It is the most reliable product in my arsenal and if I would change more often, my skin would look even better. Shame on me !!!!!
