 Then look for Hypafix. It's like cloth, pretty much the same stuff they use in
infusion sets. I get much better results with Hypafix than the clear dressings.
It breathes so water doesn't get trapped underneath. I can't use anything else
in the summertime because sweat makes the clear dressings fall off, and the
trapped moisture makes me itch like crazy. If the stuff in infusion sets doesn't
bother you then Hypafix should work.
