I prefer Eakin Seals to paste. Paste has alcohol in it and will sting sore skin, therefore people should try and avoid using it on excoriated skin. In my opinion, seals last longer and don't smell like the paste does. The seals also have healing properties in them for the skin too.
I have had an ileostomy for 31 years now due to UC.

My surgeon had me use the paste especially due to the stoma area not healing correctly (which is why I had the abscess and when my reversal occurred he said he had to scrape my abdominal walls since they were all infected). The paste is like caullking, I never tried the barrier rings which I hear are on the same idea
