Has anyone had skin reactions to the adhesive used by pump manufacturers… especially Omnipod? Have you found anything that works to protect the skin and the adhesive stay on?
I didn’t have allergies to the adhesive on Medtronic Minimed pumps… but I did have allergies to the catheter that goes inside the skin. It’s been three years since I’ve used my pump and I STILL have about 200 bumps on both sides of my stomach from where the infections used to be. That- even after changing my site every 2 days- It used to get infected so badly that little chunks of skin would peel (stretch) off of me as I pulled the catheter out- after only TWO days!
Thank you! We will give it a try.
Oh, I hate that for you. So have you tried any other pumps or are they all the same…kind-of like the adhesive. I was told that all the pump manufacturers use the same stuff. Are you okay with doing the injections? I guess we might have to go back to that too.
