There is quite a different in humidity levels between tropical south Florida and the high desert of Nevada. My body is starting to show evidence of the difference.
My hair is so full of static that I end up pulling it back in a ponytail by the end of the day in frustration.
I’ve started carrying lotion and lip gloss on me at all times to try to stop the cracking and the splitting.
Worst of all, when I take my beloved Opsite Flexifix off my pump sites, it looks (and feels) like it has burned my skin. *
I took this picture five days after I removed the piece of tape from my skin. It feels about as bad as it looks, unless the lizard look is “in” this season.
Seriously though, what do you guys do? Moisturize before? Does stuff still stick? Some sort of barrier (IV Prep gives me hives)? Just treat the dry scaly mess after?
*Interesting to note that it is doing this with the pump sites on my midsection but not the DexCom on my arm. I’d blame it on the insulin but as you can see it is even doing it under the secondary disconnect site that is nothing more than a glorified sticker. Different adhesives?
