Ostomy Devices . . . .
. . . with an Ileostomy
Nearly all 2-piece devices have a connecting flange that holds fluids around the stoma.
A mere teaspoon is painful at 8 - 10 pH.
When lying down, that barrier is nearly horizontal and the stoma cut-out is fully submerged, which helps fluids to penetrate.
The ileostomy passes fluids that must be kept off your skin.

That teaspoon is flange diameter and height, minus stoma space.  A 50mm flange with a 25mm stoma holds 2 teaspoons.
The #10504 is just one example of the type flange with every 2-piece brand tried, except this no-flange version shown next.

This is a 2-piece Coloplast system, using the #10551 barrier with the #12262 pouch. It doesn't have a gap that collects fluids.

Ileostomy brings fluids which can make a leak.  The higher alkalinity lowers viscosity. Highly alkaline fluids can easily seep under barrier and be trapped, contacting your skin and forcing a barrier replacement.
