Eakin Barrier Ring - Adhesive difficult to remove?

Sat Jan 23, 2021 4:52 pm
This is a great community. Consider joining.

Hi All,  I tried an Eakin barrier ring (slim) for the first time a couple days ago.  On the second night I had a bad blow-out which I blame on the pouch, but when removing the whole thing, I had adhesive stuck all around my stoma from the barrier ring.  For those of you who have had experience with this product, is this normal?  It took a lot more adhesive remover and a lot of rubbing to get it all off, making my already pretty tender skin, even worse.  I have used a variety of barrier rings and have never had this problem. These samples may have been some of the older ones, maybe a year or so old so I don't know if this would have anything to do with it.  Many thanks!

These are the top 5 issues ostomates face:

1. Dating and relationships
2. Concealing the pouch
3. Foods to eat and avoid
4. Losing or gaining weight
5. Pouch ballooning

If you had it on for a day or less it is more sticky than if you wore your pouch for 3 or 4 days. The answer is yes it is normal if it was on for one day or less. Also it may help to hold the adhesive remover over the spot that is very sticky for about one minute before wiping it. It will come off easier without irritating your skin. Another option is to keep a damp face cloth over the sticky area instead of adhesive remover because adhesive remover might sting whereas water is soothing.Hope this helps

Adhesive remover wipes get most of it off, if a little is left behind just put the new ring over top. For me removal is fallowed by bath or shower so very little is left behind.

Hey Delgrl, Do you use adhesive spray in the can?  I use the spray and it works great. Stay well.

Hello Terry.

I use the Adapt Holister medical adhesive spray and it works for me. I do also use the adhesive remover spray to remove the baseplate, otherwise I think it might make the skin a bit sore.

Best wishes
