I was using the omnipod from July 2010 until January 2011 (just stopped using it). I had to switch back to the omnipod because my skin had grown defenseless against it. Initially, my skin worked fine with the omnipod, but now my skin is horrible in all of my pod sites. Seriously disgusting. So I'm back on needles untilfor the time being :(
Has anyoone else experienced this? Also, I've tried the skin barrier films but they didn't work. I've also tried not using alcohol to cleanse my skin beforehand. I feel like I've taken a step back in my diabetes journey :( I'm 19 and was diagnosed when I was 18 and am really trying to get a handle on this. Any suggestions on what I could do to block my skin from the adhesive somehow?
