At Nutrisense, we strive to ensure that your experience with our product is comfortable and effective. If you have a history of skin irritation from adhesives, we want to provide you with some tips to help you succeed with your Continuous Glucose Monitors (CGMs).
To reduce the risk of skin irritation, we suggest taking these steps before placing your sensor:
- Try applying a small amount of Flonase (or generic fluticasone propionate nasal spray) to the skin before attaching the sensor.
- Consider placing a clear bandage, such as this one, on the skin before attaching the sensor. Then place the sensor over the top of the bandage.
- You can also try using these hypoallergenic patches.
We encourage you to explore our Help Desk and Blog pages for additional resources and information. Our team is always available to assist you in any way possible to ensure you have the best experience possible with Nutrisense.
