1. Don't wait for infections.
2. Don't wait for insulin resorption to plummet
3. Don't get scars (BEWARE of humungous TEFLON damage, thinner is better)
4. Don't overuse sites
5. Don't use alcohol

6. Do take care of your belly (and other sites)
7. Some people use antibacterial dressing (as a preventive measure)

What do you expect? A single use syringe might be under your skin for 5 seconds,
one day has 86,400 seconds.
