I am having a very difficult time keeping my appliance attached when I get hot.  If I am outside for only a short period of time, I sweat under the flange and the adhesive combined with sweat turns to "slime" and everything comes off.  Does anyone have ideas, suggestions, recommendations?  I have tried paste, no paste, barrier ring, no barrier ring, and sure seal rings.  I don't want to sit inside all summer.  Ideas please!

Product used:  Coloplast Assura, 2 piece.

Hi Bosco. I think you might want to try different products to see what works best for you. I am an average "sweater" but I can be out golfing in 102 degree weather for several days with the same flange, and no problems. I don't use any adhesive, only a strip which I fold around the opening. Check out Hollister and other manufacturers. They will all send you free samples. Good luck!
