Skin irritation from adhesiveFri, 05/19/2017 - 9:51PM
I've had my device for 3 years and the past couple of months, the skin under the bandage and the foley anchor has started to itch, but I don't know from what. I don't know if it's the Tegraderm, the cloraprep which my doctor said to switch to alcohol to clean the area, or the skin prep solution. I've tried using iodine to try to switch from the cloroprep with no results. Just started trying alcohol which worked for a couple hours then started itching. During bandage change I've tried cleaning the area well with adhesive remover, applying itch relief cream on the skin and leaving it covered with a 4x4 sponge for an hour with no results. It's driving me crazy and Idk what else to do.
