Ok it is hot and humid here in Virginia. I run and do outside work and get completely soaked. I’ve lost a few sites even with the added IV3000. I’ve tried the Mastisol samples from the Medtronic tape kit and they work fine even when swimming in the ocean. My question is, what work best the Spray or Dispenser cap Mastisol? I’ve only use the vials so far?

I've been on the pump for 9 years and this is worst summer so far...

Or if something else works better... I'm new to the group so if this has been covered before just point me to the info...

Thanks

I have a 15ml non-spray bottle (it just has a regular bottle cap) and I dip a q-tip in there to apply it. That works best for me. I found the spray messy and frustrating to deal with - I wouldn't recommend it. I've had my little bottle almost a year and I haven't even used half of it - so don't worry that you'll run out if you get the tiny size, it lasts forever. It's a lot cheaper than the tiny single use vials.
