Hi all! Using dexcom sensors and always have issues getting them to stick. I sometimes use mastisol but it usually gives me a rash. In search of the “perfect” tape, lol.

So I was in the same boat for a while, but I contacted my doctor and was able to get these two products: Skin Tac Adhesive Barrier Prep Wipes and ReliaMed Stérile Latex Free Thin Film IV Site Adhesive Dressing 2-3/8”x2-3/4”

Skin tac is a wipe that makes your skin sticky and ReliaMed is an actual tape. Both were 100% covered once deductible was met. Good luck!

The skin-tac works great, and they also make wipes to get the sticky stuff off when it’s being stubborn.
