Unbiased Opinions Wanted - Skin Barrier Sheets

Tue Jul 06, 2021 6:26 pm
"This is the best website for people with an Ostomy, hands down. So much understanding. Everyone should join."

Hi Guys,

  Looking to hear from anyone who has first hand experience with skin barrier sheets from the big guys.  I'm talking Hollister Hollihesive Skin Barrier, DuoDerm (extra thin) GCF Dressing and Coloplast Brava Protective Sheets.  What should I know about each, and which worked best for you?  

  Ok, I'll take slightly biased opinions too.........the other kind are like hen's teeth, aren't they?.  

thanks,

bob

Hi Bob,

I have only ever used Duoderm extra thin. It's a bit pricey but I think worth every penny. My skin is super sensitive so I use it alot just to keep my skin in good condition. If I get a red, weepy irritated spot the Duoderm also helps to heal it. I just cut the size I need an put it on my peristimal skin ( sometimes I seal the edges with paste) and slap my wafer on top. Good to go.  The Duoderm also helps me get a little more wear out of the wafer. Between 5-7 days.

Here is a link to an article you might find helpful

Hope you find a solution soon!
