I am trying a "Reliamed thin film I.V. site dressing" where I apply the dressing and then my cmg and pump catheter go on top. I am even shaving so no hair gets in the way...it has worked perfectly in the Florida weather so far for my running. I went swimming today for about an hour and was concerned that the sites were getting too loose but they firmed back up after drying off. I hope someone has a foolproof way as I certainly can't afford for my cmg site to come off!

can you buy that at any drug store?

I don't know, I order it through my mail pharmacy. I have attached a website address above that I found searching the product. I got a box of 100. It was covered by my insurance.
