[IP] Tape Not Sticking/Mastisol Liquid Adhesive



Is Mastisol Liquid Adhesive available by prescription or over the counter?  
Does it help with allergies to tape?

Do most insurances cover it?

I am having a lot of trouble with tape not sticking.  I use IV prep, then 
Tegaderm , then I insert the sofset and tape it with both squares of tape 
that are included.

I am having a hack of a time, both on my leg and stomach.  I asked a 
pharmacist about Mastisol and he hadn't heard of it. 

Thanks
Julie

Kathy, and anyone else that needs to know...when Josh started pumping over 2 
years ago NOTHING would make his sites stick to his skin.  Then we heard 
about Mastisol Liquid Adhesive.  We have barely used up hald of the 4 oz 
bottle in over 2 years time.  We wouldn't be able to be pumping if not for 
this stuff.  I apply it to Josh's site using a QTip after using IV prep.  I 
leave the center area free of M. so that the canula does not get stuck or 
sticky.  I fan the area for a few moments to allow it to get a bit tacky 
before I insert the set.  Josh can now spend a long time in water and not 
have his sites come off.  Like I said he would not be pumping if not for this 
stuff.
