Urostomy: How do you care for skin under the wafer?

Thank you for your reply @jshollett. I did not know about using a loofa. We have finally (we hope) learned how to apply the wafer and to get it to be leak-free for more than two days. We found that eliminating the barrier ring and using a Coloplast convex wafer works best for his anatomy. I hope the ring is not a necessary item to protect the stoma.

Yes. I just wave a 4×4 over it for about 30 seconds

I would be worried about a loofa. I think it’s an unnecessary action with potential problems if any part of it is loose
