Hi all! I am a parent of a newly-diagnosed (January '08) 10-year old boy who just got the pump two weeks ago. Unfortunately, he seems to have developed an allergy to the adhesive for the site (as if we need anything else to worry about!) His skin is red and bumpy when we remove the site, and it itches. Has anyone heard of this? Any suggestions?
His doctor says it's rare, but not unheard of. We just received a bunch of samples of other adhesives from Medtronic and are starting to try them tonight.
I'm glad I found this site!
