I occasionally have a site that is itching and have put hydrocortisone
cream on the outside of the area the adhesive covers (I use tenders),
staying away from the cannulla.

I have problems with dry skin causing itching so I try to put lotion on
my abdomen at least twice a week and use Alpha-Keri bath oil in the
shower except on site change mornings.
