Re: [IP] RE: Infusion site a little bit red

You may be having a site reaction from your insulin.  If you are using
Humalog, try using Novolog and see if the same reddening occurs.  If
you're using Novolog, try Humalog.  Many of us turn out to be
sensitive to one or the other and get reddening at the infusion site. 
Usually switching to the other fast acting insulin gets rid of the
problem and makes the sites last a bit longer.  However, YMMV.
