Irritated or red skin while also experiencing output on the skin

Leakage can be a result of poor adherence or erosion of the adhesive and can typically be as a result of cutting the hole in the baseplate inaccurately. If the hole is too big, the skin exposed to faeces or urine will eventually become irritated. Therefore, the supporting products recommended below are designed to protect against leakage.

Recommendations

Brava® Skin Barrier Brava® Skin Barrier

An invisible friend for the skin

Shields against output and adhesives

Leakage and adhesives can cause a variety of skin problems. Brava Skin Barrier leaves a thin breathable film on the skin that protects against potential damage but does not affect the adhesion of the next baseplate.

Dries in seconds

With Brava Skin Barrier, a new adhesive can be applied almost immediately so no inconvenient delays.
