Can I still go in the hot tub or swimming?

Having an ostomy should never take away from doing things you enjoy. If you love taking long baths, relaxing in a hot tub, or going swimming, keep reading!

Sure Seal Rings help protect water from getting behind your skin barrier wafer. They are thin circles or thin squares, used to reinforce the seal of the skin barrier to the skin around the stoma. A good seal will prevent water from getting behind the skin barrier wafer, which allows your skin barrier/wafer to stay on even when in a hot tub or swimming. 

These rings can also be used when traveling to warm or humid climates. They give you an extra layer of protection to prevent your barrier from not adhering as well due to sweating or extra moisture. These are skin-friendly and hypoallergenic, and are completely waterproof when worn correctly. When applying check that there are no bumps or gaps.
