I have been using a pump for eight years and have used IV Prep continuously except for the few months it was recalled and not available a year or two ago.
Over the past couple of months, I find that my Silhouette infusion sets stick tons more than they used to and often leave red marks when I pull them off. I’ve never had problems with infusions sets not sticking for the three days I wear them. But I’ve also never had any problems getting them off after three days. Right now I often find that I am ripping them off my skin and they really don’t want to come off.
On my last two infusion sets I just used regular alcohol wipes instead of IV Prep. They came off easily and what I call normally after three days. So I really don’t think it is a change in the infusion sets adhesive. I haven’t changed soaps or lotions, so I wonder if IV Prep has changed.
Is this happening with anyone else or is it just weird me?
