If I don't SkinTac adhesive before applying the Omnipod, I find that the tape comes loose when I shower. I also find that that the SkinTac adhesive causes some skin irritation and sometimes itchiness.

What is your experience?

I meant to say I don't take my shower after I change my pod the first day. I definitely shower first or else the pod loosens.

I never used skintac because I'm afraid of having an allergic reaction. But I always change my pods after I shower for the day or else they will start to come off. It's really weird, I think you just have to let it have time to stick on all the way haha.

What do you do on days 2 and 3? Does it come off in the shower?

Well, only when the waters too hot.

It worked! I put it on after a shower yesterday. I showered this morning and it didn't come loose. Thanks for the advice.
