where people touched by diabetes help each other.

Quick question - Is there any known topical cream or anything in that regard to help out my skin after I take out my site / GCM sensor? The area I normally use on my thighs is getting rough / inflamed.

You can try neosporin or something similar to help it heal. Also make sure you are rotating your sites. Always using the same ones will cause bigger issues

I get rashes from my animas sites, so I put tape underneath my site and then insert through it. I use IV####, but I know others who have been successful with a variety of different tapes. http://sixuntilme.com/wp/####/07/24/keeping-the-dexcom-stuck/

We have used a skin prep that you can get over the counter and it helped with pump sites
