Hello Everyone,

Does anyone have a recommendation for adhesive remover wipes? I was using Safe & Simple but they did not seem to remove the residue. I recently tried the Brava Adhesive Remover Wipes which seem to be be more effective.  I use the Cavilon Skin barrier wipes and the Hollister 2 piece with the Cera-rings.

I agree with Bubbles that the Brava spray adhesive remover is a superior product.

I'm fan of Niltac adhesive remover spray and wipes.

What's the residue being left by? Your wafer or barrier rings?

I think it's from both. The area under the barrier ring is where the residue is difficult to remove.

Are you using Ekin rings ? Those melted terribly on me . I now use Brava Protective seals / rings. They come in thin and thick .They don't melt . Make sure it's the Protective seal not the Brava Moldable those are terrible .

Thank you for the suggestions. I use the Holister Cera-rings and they do melt terribly and do not adhere to the skin.  My stoma is half above and half flat to slightly concave and output always get under the ring.How do you find the Eakin rings for protecting the skin underneath?

Brava ring adhere very well to me . Since you are half concave order the thin version and size opening according to stoma size . Example I am a 22 stoma so I order the 18 ring so I stretch it slightly for a snug fit .So if you were me you Oder the 18 thin . Your Ostomy supplier can help you order properly. Call Coloplast they can send you a sample to try .

I've got samples of those Hollister rings, but haven't tried them yet. Eakin rings do melt for me, but the Coloplast Protective rings are really good. I did a review on them here: https://www.veganostomy.ca/coloplast-brava-protective-rings/

I found that the Coloplast protective seals choked Nellie.. But they are so easy to form with.  Maybe I used them like I do Ekin seal. -- Those I cut in half and roll, and press like a pie crust around the pre-cut wafer, to form a pillow affect. I will try to  just place the whole OC.P.R. seal as is.. ??? Nellie is odd shaped. 

 

Bubbles did u say you love these?

Having tried others, I prefer Brava protective rings. Going from outside in:

  1. Best outer package
  2. I peel off one of the covers and apply ring to stoma. 
  3. When ring firmly set to skin remove other plastic cover.
  4. Set wafer. Attach bag.

 

Straight and simple process.

Eakin rings aren't quite up to snuff in comparison.

I found that they melt and leave a residue that is miserable to clean off.

I have only used rings in a few occasions for skin healing, the Brava protective seal is the first one I tried and I can say its a great product, but I took an allergic reaction to them. May be with these rings it a case of working better or worst with each user. A lot could be to do with the type of climate you live in or the job you. I know my wafer works great for me but come a very warm day and it will quickly start too show wear. If I lived where a lot of you folk do I would have to change brand. As it rains most of the time here in N.I mine is probably a good example of one to shower with lol.

John, you also are working hard for your job too.  Movement takes it toll on these issues also--  And also as I am mostly laying down under my electric blanket the out put sits more near Nellie.. Never a right climate, or a right position huh? 

 

How r u doing by the way?  Haven't heard from you in a bit.. 

Safe n' simple works well for me.  no sting.. Some of the others did sting.. I don't really want to upset Nellie to much.. she's a brat............

Doin the very best, did have that bit of broken skin caused by my me rushing but have got it cleared, This may be of topic but I had been using the crusting method and then seen how Eric used rings for the same issue, great tip works well and give comfort while it heals
