Re: [IP] Cavilon barrier cream



I have used the Cavioln Cream on my son for a year now.  It does help to 
protect the skin and help with the the sticking.  Make sure the cream is 
completely absorbed before you apply tape.

Katy,

IV Prep is a "barrier wipe."  It's purpose is to protect the skin but it
is also tacky to a small degree.  I use it to protect more than
anything.  I use the Ultraflex and have successful sites.  HTH
