"Thank you for the link! Mine are the IV3000 1-HAND 2 3/4 x 2 3/4 with adhesive all the way around. They fit under the pod nicely. They are the same material as the Tagaderm that you have described so I am going to give it a try next pod change since…"

2Dogs replied to Dawn's discussion 'allergic reaction' in the group OmniPod Users
"I have no experience with the IV3000 but I did a google image search and the material appears the same. You may need to cut it down to size so it's approx 1/4 to 1/2" larger then the pod white cloth/bandage. Place it on first, then the pod…"

Hank Barnes replied to Dawn's discussion 'allergic reaction' in the group OmniPod Users
"I think IV3000 is a wipe. It provides a little extra adhesive. I don't think IV3000 would help with itchiness/irritation of skin. Tegaderm is a "patch" that goes under pod (as 2Dogs said)."

jattzl replied to Dawn's discussion 'allergic reaction' in the group OmniPod Users
"Thank you for input, I have the same problem. Is Tagaderm the same as IV3000? It sounds the same and I have boxes of it. It is expensive so I'm hoping I can use it instead of the Tagaderm."

2Dogs replied to Dawn's discussion 'allergic reaction' in the group OmniPod Users
"try using a Tegaderm. You place it on the skin first, then place the pod over it. I used to have same problem with the rashes and itchiness, but none since using the Tegaderm. It's appearance is very much like the thin, clear protective sheet…"

allergic reaction

My daughter is 9 been diabetic for 2 years wearing omni pod for almost 1 year. Started getting welts, bruises, rashes for several months. Can't get our rep to call back she is freaking that she may have to give shots again. She loves pod but customer service sucks . Very insulin sensitive so lots lows and highs. Help
