I'm not using any tape anymore. Of course there were gauze pads/tape right after surger. Those have been off for several days - maybe a week. The little "steri-strips" were still on for several more days, but those, too, are off now. funny thing is, the itchy raised welts didn't show up until everything was off. It's like a day or two of not being covered, they started breaking out. Since all the steri-strips didn't come off the same day, it's taken several days for all of the incisions to be affected.
Thanks for input --- I'll have my husband stop at the store and get some Benadryl creme, since the others don't seem to be doing it.
BTW - I see that you had your surgery on aug 29th. That was my original surgery date, but insurance didn't come through in time, so it got postponed till Sept. 4th (less than a week later!)
How are you doing other than the above? Well, I hope! ~ Tara
