    Hola everyone!

    For the last 3 months we have been using the Dexcom and the first 2 months with NO issues. We were using Skin Tac to stick the sensor the most amount of time possible. The last month has been horrible, skin irritation and itching, sensors not lasting even 7 days.

    I have tried Opsite Flefix, Tegaderm, Tough pad and nothing lasts more than 3 days.

    PLEASE, I need some advice.

    Silesse™ Sting Free Skin Barrier is the best thing I have tried. I would get the spray then you can use it liberally. It is silicone based, not like any of the others. Also others have used a steroid inhaler on the area. My daughter had horrible itching with the Omnipod and just the Silesse alone fixed it for her. Have you tried it on your arms? We found that the skin on her arms was far less sensitive, also try the buttocks.
