THE IMPORTANCE OF A SKIN BARRIER

A skin barrier adheres to your skin around the stoma, helps to protect your skin from stoma output, and attaches the pouch to your body. It is necessary to have a skin friendly barrier to avoid irritation as well as striping - yet sure enough to prevent leakage.

SKIN BARRIERS INCLUDE:

  • Standard wear Stomahesive ® skin barrier, which is best when managing a stoma with less corrosive output such as 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 found on one-piece products. These modified adhesives help provide skin protection but are designed for more frequent pouching system changes.

CONVATEC SKIN BARRIERS COME IN THE FOLLOWING VARIETIES:

  • Pre-cut-available in a wide variety of sizes to accommodate stoma size, without the need for cutting
  • Mouldable-stoma opening can be moulded to fit individual stoma shape and size. Creates snug fit around the stoma, providing greater leakage protection than traditional barriers.
