Re: [IP] the tape hurts

 change the set.  It hurts to peel the tape off.  Can anybody offer any >>

Try warming the area with a blow dryer, or place a warm wet wash cloth over
the area holding it in place for a few minutes.  Press down on the skin with a
slight stretch on the skin...catch an edge of the tape and roll it in the
opposite direction of the skin stretch.  A little babynoil on a cotton tip
swab rubbed between the skin and the tape can sometimes loosen it even
further.  Hope this helps.
