Re: [IP] Hardness @ old pump site?



Hi Nancy,

I change my site every other day and occasionally have these pinkish swollen
spots.  My doctor told me my skins just sensitive and to use Neosporin. I've
never had one go into an infection.  Give your son a hug and yourself a pat
on the back.  Your both very brave.  Carol T.
