The edges of the adhesive detach from the skin

As the edges of the adhesive begins to detach from the skin, they will lift and create channels underneath for the output to leak out through. Detaching edges typically happens if the adhesive is not big or flexible enough to follow the movements or stretching of the area around the stoma, or if you have not applied it in the optimal way. See below for recommendations.
