Has anyone had an abscess develop from a pump site?

I have had it happen once! Make sure you switch the spots! Those hurt, mine went away on its own.

My husband just recently had two. He's been pumping since 1981. Make sure Dr checks out un case u need antibiotics. These two raised his bs

Yes, when I was first put on the pump. My doctor actually had to switch my insulin because I was reacting badly to the first one he initially put me on. Also making sure you change your sites up to three days. I've waited a day longer before and I've developed bumps, scars, etc.

It's weird, I've been on this device for 8 years and this is the first time I've had issues!
