Coloplast Without Barrier Ring?

Jun 23, 2023 9:08 pm

Hey, anyone who uses Coloplast... my pharmacy failed to reorder my supplies so now I have to wait until Monday for delivery. I am completely out of barrier rings but I have a couple of one-piece pouches. I'm currently wearing a Convatec one-piece that I had received as a sample a long time ago. I hate it, it's peeling off at the edges and my skin is getting itchy. Has anyone used Coloplast base plates without a barrier ring? Feeling miserable and Monday feels like a long way off :(

Any chance you have any paste and/or Hollihesive?

I have used the Coloplast 2-piece in the past without a barrier ring. As long as it fits your stoma well, it should be fine.

Hi - I have used Coloplast without the barrier ring for short (couple of days) periods of time with some success. Just make sure you run your finger around the outside circle of the stoma so you have a good seal. Good luck until Monday! Bryce

I wear Coloplast one-piece currently and I don't use barrier rings. Cut the wafer like you do with any other appliance to fit your stoma and warm it up (a blow dryer works awesome), or you can hold it between your hands to warm it. Once it's warm, take the paper off the back, put it on, and for me, I like to hold it, making sure it's down everywhere and stuck around the stoma and edges, and it's nice and warm.

I love this website! Folks are so willing to help. It has made my "ostomy life" much easier - the doctors and ostomy nurses of the world cannot begin to provide the information that is shared on this site! Thanks to all who participate!
