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

I would like to help you as I have had serious skin problems my self after my coloscopy last year. Also the stoma is flat/concave so I need to use a barrier ring in order to make a good seal around the stoma. However I am not sure what you are referring to when you say the 'wafer'. Are you talking about what I call the 'flange' to which the bag is attached? I have read the other replies you have had and it is all good advice. Do you have an Ostomy specialist that can look at your particular problem and advise what would work best? Do not ignore the skin problem it will get worse.

I am calling the part attached to the pouch as the wafer. This is a one piece pouch. Maybe it is a flange on a two piece. ??? We are Mayo Clinic patients so yes, there is an ostomy nurse. We are located over an hour from the clinic so we go for an appointment only when required. Thank you for your concern. Everyone has been helpful and appreciated.
