RE: [IP] Adhesive Reactions! :(



Natalie,

I am using skin prep (Allcare) and it improves the tape 'stickability'. =
May
be you can try another skin prep which acts like a barrier between the =
tape
and skin.=20

Hope this helps, take care,

Avner

Subject: [IP] Adhesive Reactions! :(


Well, I thought I was doing well using Tegaderm, but with this last set
change, I started getting itchy welts at the edges. :( :( :(  Then it
turns into weepy sores. :( :( :(

I like the SofSets, but haven't been able to find an adhesive that both
sticks, AND doesn't cause a reaction.=20

Tegaderm and Polyskin have both caused reactions, and IV3000, even with
IV Prep, doesn't stick very well.=20

Is this common to develop a reaction to an adhesive that you initially
did well with?

Any other suggestions?=20

Not a happy camper at the  moment -- I love the pump, but not the
itching and the sores!
