Default Infusion Sets

Any pump users out there that use infusion sets, I have a question. Recently I've been having skin problems from my infusion sets. I use Animas Inset. I've used the same sets since starting on my pump in 2012. Every now and then I get a bruise but for the most part, no skin problems. Recently I'm getting raised welts from the sets and also extremely itchy when I take them off. I always use an alcohol wipe prior to putting infusion set on and I always wipe the area with an alcohol wipe when I remove it.

I'm wondering if I'm becoming allergic to the adhesive on the set, or is it the alcohol wipe, or both? Perhaps my system is changing and doesn't deal with this combo anymore?

Has anyone else ever experienced this?

Thanks for your help in advance.
