Hi. wondering if anyone can help please. I live in the UK and have 7yr old son who has been pumping Omnipod for coming up to 2 yrs now.Over the past couple of months we have been having problems with the cannula site becoming red and because of this have been having to change pods more frequently sometimes only after just a day.When the pod is removed it just looks like a small insect bite. We have always rotated the buttocks and thighs as sites as he is very slight, He has no fat on his stomach and pod still looks too big for his arm even though we now have the smaller sized pods. Up until now have had very few issues and love the pod. Im worried we may have to go back to mdi. Any advice i would be grateful of. Thanks. Becky
call your endo because a bump might mean an infection
it looks like it to me
My sites are almost always a little red after removal. It goes away in a few hours, and is nicely healed after a few days. Best advice is to search for more spots, like leg and buttocks. Also remember you can usually rotate the pod 180 degrees on spots you've used in the past, as this moves the cannula a bit from the last time it was used there.
