Is there any way to treat or prevent skin allergy reactions to adhesives and dressings?

I used to only be sensitive to plastic tape and Latex. Now I'm allergic to most bandaids, tapes (paper and plastic), and sterile transparent dressings.

I can only use the IV3000 dressing and cloth tape now. Everything else causes a reaction that looks like a severe burn with large fluid filled blisters.

I even reacted to the Sorbaview dressing that was used when my new PICC was placed on thurs.

I don't want to become allergic or sensitive to all adhesives and dressings. Any suggestions?

I used collodial silver gel- sorry I can not find the bottle to check what brand it is,but I will look for it.

It helped me big time.I had skin allergy and blisters around the PICC line dressing.

I would applied gel on my skin,wait to dry, before placing the dressing.

I used to put the gel over my dressing too-I can tolerate IV3000 only.

Colodial silver gel resolved these problems within a week.
Good luck.

coffee, was the colloidal silver gel an RX or OTC product? Can you try to remember the name and where you purchased it?

I currently use a silver ion biobatch (by Silverlon) that works great. I would love to try the silver get because it would inhibit bacterial/fungal growth and help relieve inflammation.

Thank so much!

Lucky you I just found the bottle,I did not use it for long time so it was hidden in my makeup drawer LOL.

It is Argentyn 23 Professional First Aid Gel.

It is OTC product and I got it from my doctor office.
But I found a web site that sells Argentin 23 gel-www.forresthealth.com

Hope it helps.

Adhesives in bandaids, etc. may contain wheat, corn, etc. to which most ppeople doing the AI test are allergic. Not only unpleasant on the skin, but if allergic to these foods it is at the base of many health problems.

I would suggest you read some of the Allergie-Immun Germany thread which is running here, or look up the English portion of the website explaining how you can eliminate these allergic reactions permanently www.allergie-immun.de (click on English version) and do read all the red links that appear in English.

Take care.
