I'm still trying to come to the same decision. 

Seems to me that the Sils are nice because of the on-site disconnect and
the small amount of tape. 

But the SofSets are nice because they leave a smaller, less irritated
wound, which heals up quicker.

I THINK I've made the discovery that what I'm allergic to is the plastic
of the tape, and not the adhesive. 

So I've been inserting the SofSets through Hypafix, which is a paper
tape, and have had NO itching from it. The Sils also use Hypafix, or
something similar, except for the round plastic window. 

Next time I try a Sil, I'm gonna insert it through Hypafix as well, and
see what happens. 

Good luck!
