Yup!!  :)

I turned out to be allergic to every tape there is, but thanks to some
list members, I got some samples of Skin Prep (NOT IV Prep), which is a
wipe with a barrier
substance, and it has worked like a charm!!!  :) :) :)  

I was afraid I'd have to give up the pump! But so far, after I dunno,
maybe 3 or 4 set changes, I'm doing fine!
