Hi all, I have never used a skin barrier. I think that's what they are called - the thing that goes around your stoma and sits between you and the appliance. With my ileo, it is recommended, but I forgot to ask: is mixing brands a problem? I have two different brands of skin barrier - one Coloplast and the other Eakin - and two different brands of pouch - Hollister and Coloplast. Does it matter if I use, say, the Coloplast barrier with the Hollister pouch? Will it still work as well? I need to buy more barriers and would also appreciate advice on which are the best. Many thanks!
