RE: [IP] Tape peeling skin

Try using (or requesting samples first) of a skin prep called "Bard".  I
find it puts a pretty good barrier between my skin and the tape.  I also cut
a piece of tape only big enough to cover where the sofset touches my skin.
Put that down first, insert sofset through small tape piece, then cover with
a full piece of tape with a hole cut in the middle (to allow the "button" to
poke through).  Sometimes I still get irritations around the edges, but that
is only on my upper stomach.  MiniMed tells me that is a more sensitive skin
area on women.
