Skinister Medical Adhesive For Ostomy Care
Why use Skinister Medical Adhesive for Ostomy Care
Most ostomy wafers will come with a layer of adhesive already applied. However, the thin adhesive layer might not create a strong enough bond to the skin for extended wear. This can sometimes cause discomfort or leakage. Skinister Medical Adhesive can be applied in addition to this adhesive to help provide a secure seal and maintain your skin health.
