Re: [IP] Dexcom Issues



I do clean it with alcohol and I make sure my skin is as dry as possible
before applying. I believe they are sending me some tegaderm so maybe
that'll help. I have extremely dry skin so I do apply lotion and sometimes
use a butter bar in the bath to ensure moisture till I bathe again.
