Stoma irritation

13 weeks with ileostomy following surgery for rectal cancer...have a lot of irritation around stoma due to waste getting under moldable ring.Use Coloplast 2 piece convex appliance,rarely get 2-3 days before changes....ostomy nurse says we are doing things right but have a recessed stoma so perhaps that makes it harder to get a good seal...very frustrating when at times we are changing daily...would appreciate ideas that may help.
