Re: [IP] Itching tape

My problem has been that WHATEVER tape I've tried, even if it seems OK
at first, I develop an allergy to.

I've had some success with the Skin Prep (the one that lays down a
barrier), but it flakes off at the edges, and I develop an allergic
reaction at the edges of the tape after a day or two. 

I've been tempted to rub the edges of the site with a corticosteroid
cream -- that would help with the itching, but might suppress the immune
system and abet an infection.

I really don't know what to do further -- hope someone else has some new
and different ideas!
