Hollister Adapt® Barrier Rings Mean Less Worry
Barrier rings create a smoother skin surface so that the ostomy bag fits more securely on the stoma. These rings can help prevent ostomy drainage from getting under the pouch seal, protecting the skin.

My stoma isn’t round. Can I still use barrier rings?

Is there a top or bottom to the barrier ring?

Do I need to use both the paste and barrier rings?
Most people find that the barrier rings eliminate the need for paste.
How do I know what size barrier ring to use – the 2” or the 4”?
Because the rings stretch and mold so well, most people find that the 2” ring works best.
