This is the only product I will use on my neighbor with an ileostomy. I have not been able to find any skin barrier without alcohol other than this one. While in the hospital his bag kept leaking and the nurses 'wrapped' it with towels, leading to greater than 24 hrs of acidic, liquidy stools burning his skin. Long story short, we took him home and healed his skin ourselves. Since the burn healed he has not been able to tolerate anything with alcohol on his peristomal skin. I had to look high and low to find this product, the manufacturer was no help to me in obtaining it even after several conversations. Furthermore it is not covered by Medicare, which it should be! Fast shipping of product from Parentgiving, thanks!
Pros:Non-alcohol, skin barrier that provides great protection to skin without causing pain. Ostomy bag flanges adhere better, we no longer need to use tape to reinforce the edges.
Cons:No negatives about the product itself, but feel it should be covered by MC. Expensive to self-purchase when little money coming in.
Overall: Yes, I would recommend this product.
