Hi Folks, We are all familiar with seals/rings, they come in many brands and sizes. I use a ring to level out a dip around my stomach. I recently came across a new type of seal by Dansac called TRE Seal. So what’s different! Well the shape for a start it’s not round it wider at one side and also is formed from 3 layers which protect skin and absorb moisture. The ring is very easy to use not sticky on your fingers and can be cut or shaped like most seals. Dansac is a Uk company and I am not sure of availability in the US or Canada. But i think it’s worth looking into. I feel this would be great for a new ostomate as its so easy to use and for problematic leaks and broken skin.

That sounds awesome! Thanks for sharing, John!

If anyone gets a chance to try these, I'd love to hear from your experience. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like something we can get here in Canada :(

Just your friendly neighborhood ostomate.

Hi Marcie, These seals are very easy to use and pliable. Am sorry to hear that you have more health problems. Stay strong and our thoughts are with you.
