Well, there is a lot of stuff to experiment with before you give up. Barrier wipes like Skin-prep, and different adhesives like Hypafix, Tegaderm and IV300. This is not an exhaustive list. I had a lot of problems with tapes when I first went on the pump (and we had to secure a safety loop with tape), and found that Hypafix was the only thing that worked for me. 12 years later, I'm finding that I CAN tolerate Tegaderm for the CGM, so things can change.

If you decide to try, a CDE with knowedge of the different products available can really help.
Yes I have a Dexcom and it's my most favorite. But, I really love the old case from my Accu-Chek Advantage. You know the one that was approx. 4x6 inches? It now holds my OmniPod, in it's silicone skin, a needle for "just in case", a vial of insulin, a Accu-Chek Multiclix and two extra drums for it. I also have in the pocket of it, all of my doctors business cards and my insurance card. The Accu-Chek Advantage meter is long gone but it's case goes on.
Favorite gadget.. Accu-Chek multiclix lancet device...
