Re: [IP] Cavilon Cream

Hi, Barbara,

I just put a very thin layer of it on my abdomen when I get out of the
shower, let it dry completely,  then I actually wipe off any excess with a
paper towel.  Then, I put on the IV Prep, insert, and put on the IV3000 tape
that comes with the set.  Works fine for me that way.  No more sandwiching
or layering tapes, and have not needed anything else to make them stick.
Works just fine, of course, YMMV, as always...  <G>
