In brief: Ostomy
Standard wear stomahesive® skin barrier, which is best when managing a colostomy.
Longer wear durahesive® skin barrier, which is designed to provide greater protection from effluent and barrier breakdown, and is very effective with highly irritating stoma output, typical with an ileostomy or urostomy.Modified versions of stomahesive® and durahesive® skin barrier are also found.
