Does anyone else have a lot of trouble removing the Dexcom adhesive? I’ve been on the Dex for about 2.5 months now. I exclusively put the sensors on the back of my arms because I had terrible issues getting the sensors to stick on my abdomen, and all the adhesive “helpers” I used either gave me insanely itchy rashes (TransPore tape, Tegaderm) or didn’t work (Mastisol, SkinPrep, SkinTac).
But now on the back of my arm where there aren’t the same issues with constant movement disturbing the site, the adhesive is too strong! Even using multiple Uni-Solve wipes (usually 2 or 3) and alcohol swabs, I end up with sticky residue left over that then collects lint from my clothes and looks unsightly
So I’m wondering if anyone out there has tried something else for removing the adhesive. Perhaps Detachol? (I don’t have any, as I’ve always found that Uni-Solve does a fine job of removing even Mastisol.)
