Re: [IP] Cavilon Cream

Well, I finally found a pharmacy that could order the Cavilon Cream for me,
(Eckerds can only order from their own warehouse!) and I must say I was a
bit skeptical when it arrived.  It is a hand and body lotion,  and I really
did not see how that could possible help the tape and infusion set stick
better.  WOW was I ever wrong!!!  IT WORKS GREAT!!!!!   I no longer have to
spray antipersperant, and then put down a layer of IV 3000, and then insert
and put 2 layers of tape over the set.  I just use the cream, then insert
and use the tape from the set.  I haven't had one come loose yet, and I've
given myself 2 weeks to try it!  I would DEFINATELY recommend it to anyone
who is having problems with tape sticking!
Thank you Kim!!!
