I’ve been on the Omnipod for about 6 months and really like it. It’s very humid where I live in the summer and I’ve noticed this past month that if I’m really active, the pod adhesive will start to come up and if I’m not extremely careful, I have to replace my pod. I’m worried about swimming in the ocean. Prior to placement of a new pod, I currently just use alcohol to clean the area and wait for it to dry.
What exactly is the IV prep I keep reading about and where can you buy it? Does it make a big difference in the stickiness? Any other suggestions for use with an Omnipod?
