Pump Tape - Skin Reaction

Hello Everyone!I'm looking for some advice - I've been on an insulin pump for around 12 years. Recently I have started to notice some skin irritation to the adhesive used to keep the canola in place. My skin gets very itchy and when the tape is removed my skin is a darker color. I just wanted to know if anyone else has this problem and if there are any remedies to it. It's frustrating to wear something that itches all the time! Thank you!See More
