I am new to TuDiabetes but I can already attest to the great information I found on here when making a decision to move forward with my OmniPod Pump! I have been on it for around 3 weeks now and I absolutely love it.
I wanted to throw out a question. I started using SkinTac wipes for adhesion almost immediately, as it helped me (and the pod) to feel more secure to the skin. However when I remove the pod, the site will flare up around 1-2 days later with little red spots. I'm aware that SkinTac is a hypoallergenic, non-latex product so I would be surprised that I would be having a reaction to it.
Please excuse the image, but I thought it would be best to share what this looks like exactly. This is from my left stomach, from a site I removed almost 8 days ago.
Has anyone else had a similar experience using SkinTac wipes?
