Pam, I get some redness and started using Skin-Prep on the site before inserting the set. I use a strip of paper tape across the site (half on the set and half on the tubing) to help hold it in place. I am allergic to that tape. The Skin-Prep has solved my problem. No more redness.

I have two friends who are allergic to modern day insulins. They had to be desensitized before they could use insulin. Now they pump and use just one type of fast acting insulin. They are still allergic to the other types though. They developed complications before they were able to use insulin, because it took so long for the desensitization process to be completed.

You should use Google and research insulin allergy.

Good luck with this!
