mine keeps ripping in the exact same spot. 

I am using Hollister.

Hi dogmum, I use Hollister bags too. One piece. If it's a reoccurring problem it might be a defect in the product.? Is it a two piece? Do you have another type of bag you can switch to? I would call your wound care nurse right away and perhaps they can figure it out and or get you different bags. Hope that helps, without knowing what the exact problem is. Perhaps you could tell more of what's going on.?🤔

Hi dogmum, 

I have never heard of the flange tearing. What kind of flange is it? A material or all formable rubberish flange. Does any portion of your clothes rub this spot? Maybe a defect in the box if more than one have done it and would call your distributor for a replacement shipment.

Any luck finding out what the problem was with your flange?
