For the last couple of months my skin is gettting extremely irritated from the pod tape. Does any body knows of any skin prep to apply before applying the pod?

I am using what is called I.V. Prep. It has worked WONDERFUL for me with my pump. I haven't had any irritation, dryness, or issues with it. A box will last you up to 5 months. It all depends on how often you have to change your POD.

Yep skin-tac works for me I like the bottle not the pads
still on same one for the last year and only 1/2 gone
I get irritation from bandades and tape too boy this stuff works
Hope this has helped

Skin-tac? does it make the area pretty sticky? I mean does it make the area stickier, cleaned, and protect your skin? How expensive is it? I may have to try this with my pump. Cool!!!
