Am I missing something? This ^^^ seems like overkill.
I admit that I am not the user, but Lily does only a betadyne wipe 
followed by skin prep (she has used several brands) then
the sofset
followed by PolySkin II with a hole cut per my last post.

She bathes, swims (in the ocean as well as pools) and has never had a 
problem.  You do want the area to breath so it can dry when damp from 
sweat or water.

Anyone else have some comments on this??
