Hi Rhoda,
Just thought I'd expand on this.  I use Sofsets, which have adhesive "wings", 
and then use the two adhesive dressings supplied to secure the site.  I had 
problems with allergic reactions to all three initially!! - these mostly 
settled after several months.  I still have a badly scarred abdomen.  But 
then I am someone who is allergic to many things, including Micropore (a 
pretty good tape, excellent adhesive properties, supposedly hypoallergenic).
I would suggest waiting a while to see if things settle down, unless they're 
intolerable.  There are plenty of alternatives.  Please feel free to mail me 
off list if you want to.

Mary
