allergic to tape - need an alternative

Posted by Viola B. on 10/16/99 at 00:00 (011774)

I am allergic to most tape - I have very sensitive skin. Is there an alternative to tape?

Viola, I, also, am allergic to tape and coban. I had to put a sock under the coban when I was recovering from surgery. Looked weird but worked.

There is some non-allergenic tapes available. try searching the internet on 'hypoallergenic tape' and let me know if you find something and I'll put it in the PF book.
